Johannesburg – Brazil and Argentina might be among the favourites to win the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 trophy next month.

But if you are looking for more than just fancy footwork, we have compiled a starting eleven as well as a full substitutes bench, which serves as special mentions of some of the hottest footballers at this year’s tournament. From South American studs, the English lads and superstars, there is something for everyone’s taste.

Working with a 4-3-3 formation, which includes a goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards, the handsome football squad is drawn from all 32 competing teams.

The list also includes a full bench of 15 substitutes, as per updated FIFA guidelines. The number has increased from 12 for this year’s competition and will come into effect in Qatar as officials look to accommodate the unusual nature of the tournament.

This is as the World Cup will, for the very first time, be played in November and December instead of June and July to accommodate for the Middle Eastern heat. Team’s use of a bigger bench also comes as football’s decision-makers try to tackle fixture congestion and if illness breaks out in the squad.

Here is our Hottest FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 starting line-up and full substitutes bench:
