Spain will be looking to return to the summit of world football when they travel to Qatar for the 2022 World Cup.

When Spain won the World Cup in 2010, as part of a three-peat including back-to-back European Championships, many expected them to build on their domination. But La Roja have slipped slightly since then, underwhelming at each of the past two World Cups.

They did show some positive signs last summer, however, reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2020 and only losing to eventual winners Italy on penalties. And they followed that up with a runners-up finish in the Nations League, losing the final to France.

Can they go one step further now in Qatar?

Spain to win 2022 World Cup odds

Spain are currently priced at 8/1 to win the 2022 World Cup.

Having slowly improved under Luis Enrique, Spain are fancied quite highly to win the World Cup, with only Brazil, France and England having shorter odds than La Roja. Before the draw, Spain were fancied as much as England with some bookmakers, but they have seen their odds drop slightly.

For a while Spain looked to be in for a fight for an automatic spot at the World Cup, losing their qualifying Group B opener to Sweden – giving the Scandinavian side control. However, in the end they went through quite comfortably.

It required Sweden falling in their final two games, but Spain recovered from their opening defeat to win six and draw one of their next seven matches, finishing four points clear of the second-placed Swedes. It’s the 12th consecutive World Cup that Spain will be taking part in, last missing out in 1974.

Spain’s potential path to 2022 World Cup final

Despite being in Pot 1, Spain were handed a pretty tough group for the World Cup.

La Roja were placed in Group E alongside Germany, Japan and Costa Rica. Spain open their World Cup against the latter, who beat New Zealand to secure their spot.

Then comes the big one against Germany before Spain wrap up the group taking on Japan, with their three games split across Doha, Al Khor and Al Rayyan.

If Spain win Group E

  • If Spain were to win Group E, then this would be their route through to the final.
  • Last 16: The runners-up of Group F, which consists of Belgium, Canada, Morocco and Croatia, in Al Wakrah on 5th December.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of Match 54, which is played between the winner of Group G (Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland or Cameroon) and the Group H runners-up (Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea).
  • Semi-finals: The winner of Match 57 which will include one of the Group A or Group C winners, or runners-up from Group B or D. Involved in these groups are the likes of England, Netherlands, Qatar, France, Senegal, USA, Argentina and Poland.

If Spain qualify from Group E

  • If Spain finish second in Group E, they will go to the other side of the bracket.
  • Last 16: The winners of Group F in Al Rayyan on 3rd December.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of Match 56, played between Group H winners and Group G runners-up.
  • Semi-finals: The winner of Match 69, which could include the Group B or D winners, or runners-up from Group A or C as listed above.

As mentioned, Spain have appeared at every World Cup since 1978 and, of course, won the tournament in 2010 beating Netherlands 1-0 in the final after-extra time.

But that was the only time they have reached the final and, in fact, they have only made it past the quarter-finals twice. In 1950, they finished fourth in the “final round” a four-team group stage, with one draw and two defeats against Uruguay, Brazil and Sweden.

Overall, Spain’s most frequent finish is the initial group stage, exiting at the first hurdle on five occasions including in 2014 when they were holders – but excluding the second group stage in 1982.

Spain Golden Boot odds

Spain don’t really have a recognised goalscorer among their ranks, but Ferran Torres has proven himself to be quite handy for Lucho’s side and he’s got odds of 25/1 to win the Golden Boot.

The Barcelona forward, who has played across the front line for Spain has played 28 times for La Roja since his debut in September and has scored 13 goals, including two at Euro 2020. He has also been enjoying life back in Spain, scoring six goals since signing for Barcelona in the January transfer window after seeing his development stagnate slightly in Manchester City’s star-studded squad.
