The South American section of the World Cup qualification serves as the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Qualifications began on the 8th of October 2021 and will end on the 29th of March 2022. At the time of writing, Brazil has secured qualification through the CONMEBOL by remaining undefeated. Currently managing an impressive 12 wins and 3 draws across 15 of their games.
Brazil’s largest victory came during their 5-0 victory over Bolivia. A game which saw goalscorers Marquinhos, Firmino, Coutinho and an own goal by Carrasco. This was a dominant result that made for an amazing time for Brazilians.
During this qualification process, Brazil has been the most attacking threat in the tournament as well as the most defensive cohesive unit. Capitalising on attacking opportunities by scoring 32 goals whilst only conceding 5 resulting in a goal difference of 27. In comparison to Argentina who has the second-best stats with 23 goals scored and 7 goals conceded - equalling a goal difference of 16.
If Brazil is capable of keeping this level of attacking threat and defensive prowess, the people of Brazil and other supporters of the national team should be confident about their chances in the Qatar World Cup.
During the CONMEBOL qualification process, the structure has 10 national teams who need to play each other twice for both home and away matches. This can be considered to be a similar layout to the qualification process for the Champions League.
The teams who participate in the CONMEBOL qualification process are the following: Uruguay, Columbia, Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile and Ecuador. South American fans are eager to see where their national side will finish at the end of this qualification stage in hopes to see their team compete in the Qatar World Cup.
