The FIFA World Cup 2022 is just around the corner. We are all set for the biggest football tournament on the planet, getting underway on 20th November in Qatar. The Copa America champions Argentina are one of the hot favorites for this year’s tournament. Lionel Messi and co. will play in Group C alongside Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland. Will Dybala play in the World Cup 2022?
The Albicelestes went home in a mess from the Round of 16 following a 4-3 defeat against France four years ago. Since then, the team has made incredible improvements under Lionel Scaloni. Argentina is on a 33-match unbeaten run, winning the Copa America 2021. Moreover, they beat the Euro Champions Italy in the Finalissima by 3-0 goals.
Scaloni’s men are set to visit Qatar in November with a lot of momentum. However, could Lionel Scaloni call up Paulo Dybala for the upcoming World Cup?
Paulo Dybala – AS Roma
The 28-year-old attacking midfielder has been on Scaloni’s radar, in and out of the team for a long time. Dybala has never been Scaloni’s first-choice starter.
The good news for the Dybala fans is that things could change rapidly. ‘La Joya’has been magnificent for his new club, AS Roma.
After a hectic 2021-2022 season with many injuries in Juventus, the 28-year-old has joined another Italian club, AS Roma, for a free transfer. He is the first-choice starter for the Roma boss Jose Mourinho and plays key roles.
AS Roma has won three, drawn one, and lost one in their five Serie A games. ‘La Joya’ has found the back of the net twice already.
Jose Mourinho has been full of praise for Dybala. He tips the Argentine to maintain the amazing form and star in the upcoming World Cup. The Portuguese coach has even asked for a few bottles of wine from Lionel Scaloni as he would get a great player for the World Cup.
Mourinho praises Dybala after he scored two goals in their 3-0 victory over Monza. “This signifies what is coming to Qatar for the World Cup. Maybe [Argentina boss] Lionel Scaloni should send me a few bottles of wine because he will have a fantastic player at his disposal.”
