An England stockbroker’s prediction about the FIFA World Cup became famous and here we reveal how Lionel Messi would lead Argentina to glory and Neymar’s Brazil and Mbappé’s France would crash with a hard reality.
Maybe it’s just a worry about the start of the FIFA World Cup, but it’s a fact that English stockbroker Liberum’s Qatar 2022 outcome prediction has gone viral. And how could it not, when it gave the winner to none other than one of the fans’ favorites: Lionel Messi?
According to a story originally published by Bloomberg, the grand final of the upcoming FIFA World Cup will feature Messi’s Argentina and Kane’s England. That’s according to a now-viral prediction by Liberum.
Liberum’s prediction, complete with the fate of each of the national teams participating in Qatar 2022, has now been revealed. Read on to find out the predicted result of Neymar’s Brazil, Mbappé’s France, the USMNT and the other teams that will play in the World Cup.
How reliable is Liberum’s prediction?
Fortunately for fans of Lionel Messi and Argentina, and unfortunately for fans of Cristiano’s Portugal, Joshua Kimmich’s Germany and other national teams, when English stockbroker Liberum publishes its World Cup prediction, there is something to consider.
In the past two editions of the FIFA World Cup, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018, Liberum correctly predicted that Germany and France would be crowned world champions. So, some complicated but accurate predictions support his view of what will happen in Qatar 2022.
It is worth noting that the model used by the aforementioned English stockbroker does not only take into account sports variables, but also socio-economic values such as the country’s GDP per capita, population size and the country’s temperature, among others.
Liberum’s viral prediction of Qatar 2022: who will advance to the Round of 16
The interesting part begins. According to Liberum’s forecast, these are the 16 teams that will make it through the group stage of the upcoming FIFA World Cup. Perhaps the biggest surprises would be the resounding fall of the host country, the disappointing performance of Robert Lewandowski’s Poland and the inconsequential participation of the Canadian team that would return to this tournament after 36 years of absence to add another short participation.
Group A: Netherlands, Senegal
Group B: England, USMNT
Group C: Argentina, Mexico
Group D: France, Denmark
Group E: Spain, Germany
Group F: Belgium, Croatia
Group G: Brazil, Switzerland
Group H: Portugal, Uruguay
The matches in this round would be vibrant and eye-catching, worthy of an event of international caliber like the FIFA World Cup, in which there would be questions that would end up being resolved with surprising and unexpected results. Qatar 2022 would have an intriguing development.

Two world champions and one favorite will not advance to the Qatar 2022 Quarter Finals
Liberum surprised the world with its prediction of what was to come in Qatar 2022. If the group stage would develop in a fairly normal way, the big surprises would come with the National Teams that would manage to advance to the Quarter Finals. Once again De Bruyne and Hazard disappointed, Brazil took revenge on Uruguay and France vacated the crown very early.

Qatar 2022 semifinals according to Liberum: Spain avoids South American derby and Cristiano puts Portugal in the spotlight
Reaching this stage is already a triumph for some and an obligation for others. For the Mexico National Team, the mission would be accomplished in Qatar 2022, but for Germany and Brazil it would be another huge failure in their history in the World Cups.

Kane and England deny an epic FIFA World Cup Final
The whole world would be buzzing with the possibility of Lionel Messi’s Argentina clashing with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in the Qatar 2022 final. Everything was all set for it until the path of both stars would cross the path of the youthful but talented England to ruin a dreamed and perfect plan.

Lionel Messi finally covers himself in FIFA World Cup glory
With Cristiano Ronaldo no longer a threat, Lionel Messi would have the way paved for his great dream of bequeathing a FIFA World Cup to his beloved Argentina to become a reality. The Rosario-born star could sit down without any pretext at the table of Diego Maradona and Pelé to fight side by side to be considered the best footballer in history, having already won the most prestigious tournament in soccer.
