The FIFAe Nations Cup 2022 is the official international competition of FIFA, allowing the best players from across the globe to represent their countries. The final stage of the tournament has 24 teams, divided into six groups of four countries each.
The tournament, originally scheduled to be a biennial event, started in 2019 in England, where France was crowned champion after beating Argentina in the final.
The 2021 edition of the tournament was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak and is set to happen in Denmark from July 27 to July 30.
