How to watch the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifiers in Europe and abroad: use a good VPN service
The only way to watch your favourite teams in the action in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifiers if you’re abroad on holiday is by using a good VPN service. A VPN basically uses sophisticated code to trick your device into thinking that it’s based anywhere in the world that you want. It also protects your PC by encrypting your entire online connection, so that no one - not your ISP, mobile service provider or hackers - can see what you do online.
There are tons of free and paid-for VPN services but, in our experience, most don’t live up to their tall claims. Thankfully for you, we’ve put the best VPNs to the test to find out which ones actually let you access UK streaming services from abroad. Sadly, only a select few were found to be reliable in all our tests, out of which we highly recommend the below two.
ExpressVPN: Among all the VPNs we’ve reviewed, ExpressVPN has consistently ranked the best in terms of speed, privacy and unblocking streaming services that most other VPNs struggle to unblock. Its entire service has been publicly audited to prove that your data is in safe hands and none of your online activities are recorded by the company. The best features of the service include 24/7 support, a 30-day moneyback guarantee if you’re unhappy, and a 49% discount if you choose its one-year plan.
Surfshark VPN: Surfhark VPN is a relative newcomer to the VPN space, but it has made immense strides in the short time that it has been around. Its best feature is that a single VPN subscription can be used on unlimited devices, making it a great option for your entire family or even a group of friends. You’ll find its subscription plans one of the cheapest on the market and it still manages to pack in stunning features like a moneyback guarantee and 24/7 customer support.
How do the FIFA World Cup 2022 European qualifiers work?
The FIFA World Cup 2022 European qualifiers will be played over two stages. The initial group stage sees the 55 European nations divided into 10 groups of either five or six teams.
Teams in each group will play each other in a round-robin format with the top team in each group qualifying directly for the FIFA World Cup 2022 finals. All straightforward so far.
It's a little more complex for the second-place finishers in the group stage. The ten runners up from each group will be given another chance at qualification in a play-off style second qualifying round alongside the two best group winners of the UEFA Nations League 2020-21.
Those twelve teams will be drawn into three pathways of four teams, each playing a knockout semi-final and final. The three resultant winners will qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
FIFA World Cup 2022 European qualifying groups
Here are those FIFA World Cup 2022 European qualifying groups in full, as drawn in December 2020.
- Group A: Portugal, Serbia, Ireland, Luxembourg, Azerbaijan
- Group B: Spain, Sweden, Greece, Georgia, Kosovo
- Group C: Italy, Switzerland, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria, Lithuania
- Group D: France, Ukraine, Finland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kazakhstan
- Group E: Belgium, Wales, Czech Republic, Belarus, Estonia
