Unfortunately Italy did not qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, leaving many fans and players disappointed. They can, however, rest easy knowing that there are many stars playing in Serie A representing their countries at this year’s tournament and that they are sure to have a big impact on the results. Here are some of the best players to watch from Italian teams at this World Cup.
DYBALA – ROME AND ARGENTINA
Dybala plays as a forward for Argentina and Roma and will look to score great goals for his country in Qatar. After an early exit from the tournament in 2018 in Russia after losing 4-3 to France in the round of 16, Argentina will be ready to come out strong this year and hope to advance even further this time around.
DANILO – YOUTH AND BRAZIL
Along with teammates Bremer and Alex Sandro, both at Juventus and Brazil, Danilo hopes to help his country to a 6th World Cup victory this year. After several years of European victories, a very direct group and an excellent team, Brazil will fight to reach the final and succeed. Danilo looks like a fantastic pick for his fantasy football team, with Brazil likely to get more of a clean sheet at the start of the tournament.
DI MARIA – JUVENTUS AND ARGENTINA
Heading into their likely finals, Angel Di Maria also plans to help Argentina progress further than they did last time and hopes to secure victory while they can, as they did in last year’s Copa America, where his 22nd-minute goal secured victory for your country. about Brazil. A lifelong dream come true, will he be able to fulfill another in Qatar?
LUKAKU – INTER MILAN AND BELGIUM
A favorite among many, Romelu Lukaku is a reference in Belgian football and is currently on loan from Chelsea to Inter Milan. The forward is hoping to build on his third-place finish at the 2018 World Cup to reach the finals of this tournament, and with teammate De Bruyne will likely play a significant role in how far his country will go.
RABIOT – YOUTH AND FRANCE
Fresh from their victory in Russia 4 years ago, France will be keen to show they still have it, despite the recent rather mediocre games, when they enter this year’s World Cup. Adrien Rabiot may have the chance to really show what he can do as part of this exceptional team in the group stage and beyond, while concerns about the fitness of Juventus and French teammate Paul Pogba have yet to be fully answered. He is likely to be picked and perform well as one of France’s best players if he truly puts his injury behind him and will be another Serie A player to watch out for in this competition.
There is no doubt that Italian fans will have many of their favorite Serie A players to cheer on for this year’s World Cup, and we can see many of them in the later rounds and even the final if they perform as they should in the tournament.
