While there are players from different leagues throughout the world competing in the World Cup, Major League Soccer is not exempt. There will be a large number of MLS players competing in the largest tournament on earth, demonstrating the league’s expansion and growth around the world. With some playing in their first World Cup and a select few who have prior experience, here are some MLS players who will be going to Qatar.

Gareth Bale

Bale, who is undoubtedly going to be very important for his national team, Wales, is one of the MLS players who will grace the field at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. While he carries a major presence in the squad as captain, he will be heavily relied upon by his teammates to make something happen on the big stage.

Gareth Bale and Wales will meet the USA national team in their first match of the group stage, and they will be looking to take every possible advantage.

Xherdan Shaqiri

After having previously played in Europe and acquiring huge honours like the Champions League to his name, 30-year-old Shaqiri will be one of the numerous MLS players that will play at the World Cup. Leading Switzerland as the Captain at the 2020 Euros, he performed superbly. He is expected to carry on in that manner for his country and make an impact at the World Cup.

Karol Swiderski

The 25-year-old forward from Poland made some club history for Charlotte FC by finishing the team’s inaugural MLS season as its leading scorer. He will be paired with talented forwards like Krzysztof Piatek, Arkadiusz Milik, and world-class striker Robert Lewandowski in Qatar. Swiderski has been in excellent form this season for Poland, as he netted twice against Wales recently. 

Jesus Ferreira

One of the strikers for the US national team in Qatar is Ferreira. His resume is a little different; he possesses excellent technical skills as well as the capacity to score and set up goals.

Few young players his age can achieve what the forward has in the MLS, where he led his team in goals scored in the 2021–2022 season. Additionally, he was named the MLS Young Player of the Year.
