FIFA World Cup 2022 Teams Squads

FIFA has announced that all 32 qualified teams for FIFA World Cup 2022 will announce their 30-man squad at least 30 days before the tournament begins. They also revealed some of the guidelines which federations have to follow to confirm their final 30-man squads. We break down all the guidelines and list all the team squads on this page.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Final Squad Guidelines:

  • Every participating nation must announce its final squad at least 30 days before the world cup begins. This means we will have the final squads of all 32 teams by 20th October 2022.
  • Unlike the previous World Cups where a 26-man squad was allowed, FIFA has increased the list to a 30-man squad due to covid-19 issues. Teams can replace any player at any point after the squad is announced if the player suffers from Covid-19 symptoms.
  • In the 30-man squad allowed, teams must name at least 4 goalkeepers plus of course 26 outfield players.
  • Player kit numbers will be announced with the final squad announcement. This is for commercial purposes and kit numbers can be changed once the world cup begins.
