List of Youngest, Oldest and most experienced players at 2022 FIFA World Cup

As the FIFA World Cup 2022 opening match starts on November 20 with Qatar against Ecuador, let’s discuss a few interesting facts about this year’s tournament.

The tournament will take place in November and December for the first time in its 92-year history rather than in the middle of the year.

It is anticipated to be the largest sporting event ever hosted in the Middle East, and it will take place in a conservative Muslim-majority nation.

Qatar has invested $300 billion in the tournament’s preparations, which have been dogged by controversy from the start.

The availability of alcohol has been a particular point of contention. On November 18, authorities abandoned plans to permit the sale of beer inside World Cup stadiums.

Who is the youngest player in the tournament?

Youssoufa Moukoko, the youngest player at the World Cup in Qatar, is arguably the most promising young prospect from Germany since the rise of Jamal Musiala at Bayern.

He has a strong record in the Bundesliga in 2022, helping Borussia Dortmund with three assists and six goals.

Timo Werner’s injury made room for Moukoko to be chosen for Hansi Flick’s final German team.

Who is the oldest?

In addition to Lionel Messi (35), Cristiano Ronaldo (37) and Luka Modric (37), FIFA World Cup 2022 will feature a large number of older veterans, including Dani Alves (39) and Thiago Silva (38).

However, Mexico goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera holds the distinction of being the oldest player in Qatar.

Along with his teammate Guillermo Ochoa (37), he is one of the veteran goalkeepers playing for his country’s national team.

Who is the one with the most world cup experiences?

In Qatar, Lionel Messi will compete in his final international competition.

With 165 caps, Messi has the most appearances and goals for his nation.

In Doha, he will be hoping to cement his legacy by adding the coveted World Cup to his impressive collection of trophies.

Diego Maradona, who has appeared in 21 World Cup games, currently holds the record for the most individual appearances. Messi aims to surpass him.
