A poll conducted by BBC Sport has concluded the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM as the ‘best World Cup this century’.
Up against the 2002 to 2018 versions of football’s biggest tournament, the 22nd version of the World Cup had won majority of the votes with 78%. Meanwhile the other versions won votes in the range of 3% (2010 in South Africa) and 6% (2002 Japan/South Korea).
The poll highlighted the memorable events of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM, which was abundant in huge upsets and jaw-dropping shocks from the get-go. BBC also highlighted Lionel Messi finally bringing home the victory to Argentina by beating France in a nail-biting 3-3 Final at Lusail Stadium on December 18, coinciding with Qatar National Day. Although France stood at second place, Kylian Mbappe had added another feather to his cap by becoming the second player after Sir Geoff Hurst to score a hat-trick in the final.
