List of players who could miss out on Fifa World Cup 2022 Qatar due to injury

World Cup injured players

The first World Cup to be contested in November and December is the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and the date is already having an effect on the competing teams.

The World Cup had to be relocated from the customary June-July window due to the extreme summer heat in the host nation of Qatar. The shift in schedule will improve the playing environment for the athletes, but it has presented difficulties for some teams.

Instead of taking place during the off-season as has been typical, the World Cup this year will take place right in the heart of the European club season, putting any injured players at risk of missing the competition.

The period between the break from club play (November 14) and the World Cup's start on November 20 is incredibly short this time around. In previous editions, these players had many weeks to recover prior to the tournament's start.
