Opinion: Eight (8) Players That Could Play Their Last World Cup Next Year

Some players are still playing for their clubs, but have decided to retire from international football. In this article, I will introduce you to the eight players who may play in their final World Cup next year.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic (40)

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the greatest forwards in history, but I doubt he will continue to play for Sweden beyond the 2022 World Cup; he is currently 40 years old and will be 41 after the tournament. It's possible that this will be his final World Cup appearance.

2. Neymar Jr., Paris Saint-Germain (29)

Neymar is still young and has the ability to play at the greatest level, but the Brazilian winger has stated that he lacks the mental strength to deal with the situation, and that this could be his final World Cup.

3. Lionel Messi, PSG Lionel Messi, PSG Lionel Messi, PSG Lionel Mess (34)

Lionel Messi may not play in the 2024 World Cup, and this could be his final appearance. He is already 34 years old, and after winning the Copa America, he wants to focus on his club.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United (36)

Cristiano Ronaldo has performed admirably in recent years, but he may be playing in his final World Cup next year; he is already 36 years old, and retiring would be a prudent move.

Sergio Busquets (Barcelona) (33)

Sergio Busquets is a world-class midfielder and a legend; however, because he is already 33 years old, this could be his final World Cup. It would be a wise decision for him to concentrate on his club.

6. Karim Benzema, Real Madrid (33)

Karim Benzema has already won a major prize with France, and he will undoubtedly play in the 2022 World Cup, but it may be his final appearance.

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) is ranked seventh (33)

Robert Lewandowski, a Polish forward, could be playing his final world cup next year; he is 33 years old and may not play in the 2024 tournament.

Luis Suarez, Luis Suarez, Luis Suarez, Luis Suarez, Luis Suarez (34)

Luis Suarez is a legend and a world-class striker. He is 34 years old and may retire from international football after the World Cup in 2022.
