A number of Leicester players could be on the plane to the World Cup in Qatar. The opening game of the tournament will be Qater vs. Ecuador. No Leicester players will be seen in this clash, but looking at the other games, squad of players and the tournament you can of course see Leicester part of it.
Leicester do have a base of players from the past taking part and being involved as both Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy played for England in the semi-finalist adventure of Russia in 2018.
Leicester had 10 players involved four years ago. England; Harry Maguire, Jamie Vardy, Nigeria; Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa, Portugal; Adrien Silva, Ricardo Pereira, Denmark; Kasper Schmeichel, Tunisa; Yohan Benalouane, Japan; Shinji Oakazaki.
This time we have of course a number of players who will be certainties, some are seen a possible inclusions so there could many players to count. One who looks certain to be part of Qatar 2022 is Daniel Amartey who is a cemented member of the Ghana team.
Nampalys Mendy looks as a member to count for Senegal. He has been a key member of their team over time and of course playing in the final of AFCON this year, coming out as winners.
James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and James Justin are all possible inclusions for England as the three hopefully will look for a chance to add to their tally and no longer be part of that club of one cap wonders.
Belgium could also see three players from Leicester at this point travelling. Dennis Praet, Timothy Castagne and Youri Tielemans are all most likely on the plane to Qatar. Jannik Vestergaard and Daniel Iversen are two Danes that has a major chance of going as well as Danny Ward representing Wales.
Jakub Stolarczyk currently on loan at Fleetwood is an Poland U.21 international and highly rated in his homeland. Chituru Odunze is another with a chance as he earlier has been involved in squad duty for USA. Ricardo Pereira, currently out injured, is a player that could be an option for Portugal.
We believe the following;
Certainties: Castagne, Tielemans, Praet, Mendy, Amartey, Ward
Strong possibility: Maddison, Barnes, Justin, Vestergaard, Iversen
Surprises: Odunze, Stolarczyk, Pereira
A total of 14 players looks possible, with 6 looking certain.
