The US national team are back in action for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar after a solid performance in the CONCACAF Qualification round. Only two lost games during the qualification stage meant that Gregg Berhalter and his team could seal one of the spots for the FIFA World Cup 2022 by defeating Panama 5-1 on Sunday night. The preparations can now begin for the United States men’s national team who will make a long-waited comeback after missing out on the previous World Cup in Russia.

Missing out on the 2018 World Cup was a huge disappointment and a miscalculation for the US national team who finished second-last in the qualification round, beaten by Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica and Mexico. Luckily, the qualification stage went better this time and we can once again look forward to a FIFA World Cup where the USMNT features. This will be Gregg Berhalters first World Cup tournament as the team’s head coach after taking over the role back in 2018. Hardly ever has a US National team attracted this much attention and interest from fans all over the country. Let’s hope that this is the year when we can finally witness a US team making it to the later stages of the World Cup and break the quarterfinal record from 1930.

FIFA World Cup 2022


The 2022 World Cup will be a tournament not like previous ones. First off, it will take place between late-November and mid-December which is the first time ever that the World Cup isn’t played in May, June or July. It will also be the first World Cup to ever been played in the Arab World with Qatar as the sole host of this year’s tournament. There will be 32 teams competing in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. A limitation that FIFA has decided on increasing for the next tournament as 48 teams will participate when the World Cup comes to the US, Canada and Mexico in 2026.

Nations from the following confederations feature in the FIFA World Cup:
Confederation of African Football (CAF)
Asian Football Confederation (AFC)
Union of European Football Associations (UEFA)
Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF)
Oceania Football Confederation (OFC)
South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL)

The US national team will be one of four teams qualifying for the World Cup from the North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football. Last time the USMNT featured in the FIFA World Cup was in Brazil 2014. Then, the journey came to an end in the round of 16 when Belgium won a tight game by 2-1 after first a goalless 90 minutes and later three goals in extra time. The USMNT has lacked greater success in previous World Cups and hasn’t ever reached past the quarterfinals as they did in the inaugural tournament in 1930.

Road to the tournament


The US National team began their journey towards Qatar in the third round of the CONCACAF World Cup Qualification. They knew they were up for a tough challenge with Canada, Mexico and Panama among those teams fighting for the top 4 seed.
Two opening draws against El Salvador and Canada, and a narrow defeat against Panama in the fifth round made things complicated for the USMNT. Though after a shaky spell in the opening rounds, Greg Berhalter managed to lead his team to four wins out five in the next coming games and a spot in the upcoming World Cup was suddenly in their own hands. In the final rounds of the qualification stage the USMNT showed first class when they held off Mexico, 0-0, and rolled over Panama, 5-1, to secure the World Cup with one game left to play.
