NEW YORK (UPI) – Qatar’s 2022 FIFA World Cup has been dealt a severe blow when FIFA president Sepp Blatter hinted at it after fresh allegations of corruption surfaced.
The United States could host the 2022 FIFA World Cup – Sepp Blatter told German sports magazine that the United States could host the 2022 FIFA World Cup instead
Japan could do the same because it had applied to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup – the United States is to co-host the 2026 FIFA World Cup with Mexico
Asked if Germany or any other European country would host the FIFA World Cup in place of Qatar, Blatter said Germany could do it, but that would mean that
after the 2018 World Cup, it would happen again.
Europe to host World Cup, so Europe is not our first choice – Qatar prepares to host World Cup They are always in conflict.
