UEFA President Michel Platini Open To January World Cup In Qatar 2022

Michel Platini has backed the idea of Qatar hosting the 2022 World Cup in winter rather than summer to avoid extreme temperatures.

Speaking after a UEFA executive committee meeting in Prague, the president of European football's governing body suggested it would be much easier to organise the tournament in January rather than June.

The story is too old to be commented.
