FIFA President lauds Qatar’s preparations for 2022 World Cup
Football world body president, Gianni Infantino, has once again expressed his absolute confidence in Qatar’s abilities to deliver an exceptional World Cup in 2022.
Speaking at an open session, part of the International Federation of Sports Journalism Awards ceremony in Budapest, Hungary, the FIFA President said Qatar would be ready two years ahead of time for the mega event.
This is a record time, which none of the previous host nations have been able to accomplish, Infantino said.

“I am confident that it will be an amazing event, as it will constitute a change in the rules of the game and the people who will visit Qatar and will notice well that we are not biased in granting them the right to host, and everyone’s perception of the region and the Arab countries will change,” he commented when asked about Qatar’s preparations for the highly-anticipated football tournament.
