FIFA World Cup 2022: Top 5 players that could have their last World Cup appearance at Qatar

The 2022 World Cup is set to be held at the end of the year, and we will see some legends of the game represent their countries at the pinnacle of football for the last time. In this article, we will be taking a look at the five best players who might be headed to their final World Cup in Qatar. 

Top 5 players heading into their last World Cup 

5. Sergio Busquets 

Pace and physical finesse has never quite been a part of Sergio Busquets’ game. And while he has had an incredible journey so far in his career, the Spain and Barcelona captain will most likely have his final World Cup this year before calling it quits soon.

4. Robert Lewandowski 

The Bayern Munich striker had his first World Cup in 2018, and is now on his way to another edition. But given the fact that he is 33, he might be headed in for the last time with Poland. 

3. Luka Modric 

Modric was named the player of the tournament at the 2018 edition, captaining Croatia to the finals against France. The 36-year-old is still going strong at Real Madrid, but this will likely be the last time we see him at the grandest stage of football. 

2. Lionel Messi 

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner heads into the competition with Argentina as one of the favourites to win the World Cup following their Copa America win. But, the 34-year-old has been cryptic about his future and could call time on his national career following the tournament.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo 

Cristiano Ronaldo has helped Portugal become one of the top sides in Europe, and will be captaining his country to yet another World Cup. But, this might be the last time we see the icon at the competition, given he is already 37 years old.
