According to the sources, the 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar during the winter, thus from mid-November to Boxing Day, there won’t be any football season. Since shortly before the halfway point of the domestic season, all 20 clubs in the top five European leagues will lose a significant number of players to their national teams.
However, because of how the 32 international teams that are able to qualify for Qatar were put together. Some top athletes, including Thiago, Erling Haaland, Jorginho, Sergio Ramos, and Mohamed Salah, will remain at home.
Clubs competing for the top of the table particularly suffer from this. Compared to clubs attempting to escape relegation, these teams often send more players to the World Cup. Some countries have not yet revealed their tournament roster.
Injuries, however, have put an end to several players’ hopes for the competition now that the squads have been announced. Others, though, are anticipating their first World Cup—or, in the case of Cristiano Ronaldo, their fifth.
Here is the list of the top five clubs represented by the most players at the 2022 FIFA World Cup:
