(IranSportsPress.com | Tasnim) – FIFA Executive Committee member Theo Zwanziger said on Monday that Qatar will be stripped of the 2022 World Cup on medical grounds.
“I personally think that in the end, the 2022 World Cup will not take place in Qatar,” the German told Sport Bild.
“Medics say that they cannot accept responsibility with a World Cup taking place under these conditions.”
“They may be able to cool the stadiums but a World Cup does not take place only there. Fans from around the world will be coming and travelling in this heat and the first life-threatening case will trigger an investigation by a state prosecutor.
“That is not something that Fifa Exco members want to answer for.”
