Fifa President: Qatar World Cup A ‘Mistake’

The decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar was a “mistake”, according to Fifa President Sepp Blatter.

He was asked in an interview with the Swiss television channel RTS if it was an error to choose the country because of its hot temperatures in the summer.

Mr Blatter replied:”Yes, of course.

“You know, everyone makes mistakes in life.”

Temperatures in the Arab state can reach 50C.

Fifa shocked many when it awarded the tournament to Qatar following a vote in December 2010 in which it beat the likes of the US and South Korea.
