FIFA confirms November, December dates for 2022 World Cup

Published

on

FIFA president, Gianni Infantino has announced that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be played between November 21 through December 18.

Infantino, however, failed to confirm the number of participating teams.

The next edition of the tournament will switch to the winter months because of the summer climate in Qatar.

“The dates for the World Cup are set. It will played in Qatar from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18, 2022.

“The leagues are all aware and they will have to adapt their calendars as a consequence.

“In the end it is the right decision. It cannot be played in June and July and in November and December the players are very well prepared because it is almost the beginning of the season,” Infantino told a press conference on Friday.

Infantino added that Qatar can insist on keeping a 32-team format, though he is “pretty sure that all options will be on the table.”

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, could be forced to miss the FA Cup clash with Reading, but Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku will start.

Pogba was on the receiving end of a heavy challenge from Jonjo Shelvey, during the 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday and may be ruled out of the third-round tie at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime.

“I’m not sure if Paul is going to be ready. He got a knock against Newcastle.

“If [Marouane] Fellaini gets through the session [on Friday] it’s more or less a full squad. There will be a few changes and they’ll get a chance. Some of them are itching now to play of course.

“Lukaku and Sanchez will start. That’s important for them because they need more game time,” caretaker manager OIe Gunnar Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday.

Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo will miss out through injury, but Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian and Fred could all start against Reading.
