The 2022 FIFA World Cup is edging closer and closer every day, and we have little over a year left before the best football players represent their countries and compete to be the best football nation in the world. The sporting event, one of the most-watched worldwide, would run from November to December 2022. But before focusing on the main competition next year, the teams are currently competing on World Cup qualifiers to earn a ticket to Qatar.
For many sports fans in Singapore, the qualifiers are a great chance to see how their teams fair with other nations from the same region. It is also when sports media release storylines that would add spice to the competition. Apart from that, sports bettors can start formulating their betting strategies and techniques for World Cup online betting in Singapore. Although Singapore football odds for the World Cup will begin once the final teams and groups are determined, creating a betting system as early as now would maximize their betting options and increase their chances of winning.
Football is enjoyed by many people worldwide, so it is easy to see why the World Cup is one of the most-watched sporting events in history. Not only does it give football fans a chance to support their country, but it also gives people entertainment with all the action going on throughout the game.
Football enthusiasts consider the goals the best part of any World Cup, showing mastery and skills of the players. And as football fans enthusiastically wait for the main competition next year, it’s worth looking back at some of the best goals that helped shape the World Cup as it is today.
Many people would remember the goal scored by Hall of Famer Edson Arondes do Nascimiento, commonly known as Pelé, during their final match against Sweden at the 1958 World Cup. Then 17-year-old Pelé showed mastery of the game at a young age when he flicked the ball to get past a defender before hitting it to the back of the net and extending their lead at the 55-minute mark. Pelé made history as the youngest player to score in a World Cup final before Frenchman Kylian Mbappe broke the record last 2018.
France, the reigning champion of the World Cup, also had a glorious goal in their championship run three years ago. This comes from the Round of 16 games against powerhouse Argentina. Right-back Benjamin Parvard scored a goal that defied the laws of physics. He volleyed the ball from Lucas Hernandez’s cross in an almost impossible angle to score a goal. Not only did Parvard’s goal become one of the best goals in World Cup history, but it also helped them win a tight game at 4-3.
