Fire away: Eight potential 2022 World Cup goalscorers

The FIFA World Cup is hot, and fans expect blazing goals from all elite teams worldwide. The stars are eager to bring the best of their games with the chance to prove that they have what it takes to win on the big stage, and they need goals to succeed in the competition.



Scoring is a significant task for any player in a team. Players work hard to find ways to score the ball and make the best impact for their respective sides. With many elite teams playing in the competition, the FIFA World Cup is a chance for the top stars to show the world why they deserve all the glory and honour of being a sports star.


Here are the eight potential goalscorers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup:

Harry Kane (England)

The Three Lions have been rolling hard in the past few months, and they were close to winning the 2020 Euro tournament. Harry Kane wrapped up the 2018 edition of the FIFA World Cup. He dropped six goals in six games and was awarded the Golden Boot. Kane is the clear ace that the English squad can count on to score the most goals.


With games against Iran, the United States, and Wales, Kane can lead the way with his goalscoring talent. Since all the odds are in England's favour to start this campaign, the Three Lions can expect Kane to continue his same performance in Russia in the 2018 edition.

Thomas Muller (Germany)

Germany captain Thomas Muller enjoyed a great run as hosts in their 2006 run. The Bayern Munich star showed the world that he is not all about setting his teammates up for a lot of shots but also being a great scorer at the same time. Despite being known as a pass-first player, Muller led Germany and Miroslav Klose to score five goals in seven games.


Germany is expected to come up with a lot of push in this 2022 FIFA World Cup. The squad had upgraded its roster, with youngsters coming in to play on the big stage. Germany is set to face Japan, Spain, and Costa Rica in the same group, and they will need more hero plays from Muller if they want to keep their World Cup dreams alive.

Lionel Messi (Argentina)

Lionel Messi is going in for his last dance for Argentina in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Paris SG star is gunning for his best chance of winning the World Cup as he is yet to lead the team to a win on the big stage. Messi has been regarded as one of the best scorers in the game, and all he needs to add to his long list of accolades is a win in the FIFA World Cup and a Golden Boot in the competition.


Messi is a dedicated player, and his success has always been linked to his ability to score. It is why he can make history twice in the competition and leave a considerable mark on his team and the World Cup. He is expected to put up his best game in the coming matches against Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

Cristiano Ronaldo would always be on the same list as Lionel Messi when it comes to scoring, and there is a big chance that he may even come up with another high level of performance in the competition. While his run with Manchester United disappointed, Ronaldo still has a chance to show the world why he is one of the best scorers in this year's World Cup.


So far, Portugal's group is seen as a wrap for them as they face the likes of Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea. It's the best chance for Ronaldo to come up with a scoring galore and put his skills to work again. On top of that, the Portugal star is keen to put up a great fight to show why he can be the ace the team can count on to lead the way.

Granit Xhaka (Switzerland)

Arsenal's Granit Xhaka will join the fight and lead the Swiss squad into the World Cup. The star is one of the most reliable scorers for the team, and the captain would not miss the chance to get his chance at the big stage. Fans can expect bigger games from the Arsenal star as he aims to produce a lifetime performance.


The games will not be easy for the Swiss team. Xhaka and the team are set to play in Group G, which is host to the likes of Brazil, Cameroon and Serbia—all football contenders who present a massive threat to their campaign. Xhaka will need to come up with a huge scoring run in his games for the team if they want to overcome them and go deeper in the competition.

Neymar (Brazil)

Much like Lionel Messi, Neymar has been pressured over the years, with Brazil still not winning since 2002. Many fans expect him to step up and bring the best of his game when it matters most. The Brazilian star has been the captain for so long, and he wants to show the world why he deserves to be at the top of his squad by leading them to the championship.


Brazil is the favourite to win in Group G and their coming games against Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. It proves that Neymar will have plenty of chances to lead Brazil to the final and end its drought of winning the World Cup.

Kylian Mbappe (France)

France looked to continue their strong suit in the FIFA World Cup after their dominant win in Russia back in 2018. So far, Kylian Mbappe has led the way for the team's push in the competition. France's triumph in Russia was his shining glory, and he rose to stardom, and now he wants to bring back-to-back titles to cement their place as the best football team in the world.


Kylian Mbappe will have plenty of chances to score more goals for his team en route to their matches against Australia, Tunisia, and Denmark. They are the clear favourites to win in these games, which means it is time for Mbappe to shine bright and lead his team to greatness.

Karim Benzema (France)

Karim Benzema's return to the French lineup in the 2022 World Cup seems like a solid message to the rest of the football teams in the world. The Real Madrid ace is set to bring his talents to the table for France, and this is the best addition they've had so far. It means that Benzema adds more firepower to the squad and makes them even more dangerous.


Benzema's prowess in goalscoring will come in handy against the likes of Australia, Denmark and Tunisia in the group stages. However, the star will need to play with the team and learn to share the spotlight in scoring the ball.
