There are no big surprises in Qatar’s 2022 squad, with manager Felix Sanchez backing a number of familiar faces.

Qatar’s head coach Felix Sanchez has gone with an experienced squad for the country’s maiden World Cup appearance.

Sanchez will be hoping the Maroons will be able to repeat their historic triumph at the Asian Cup in 2019. He has backed many of the same players who made their mark in that tournament, including Almoez Ali, who was the top scorer with nine goals.

Qatar’s 31-year-old captain, Hassan al-Haydos, is set to notch up his 170th cap on the opening day of the World Cup when the hosts take on Ecuador.
