Qatar are losing any international credibility though.

With their other countries in the region like Saudi accusing them of funding terrorism Laughing, and their rapidly decreasing friend list, who will stand with a WC in Qatar.

Qatar will not host the World Cup in 2022, according to Theo Zwanziger, the German member on the executive committee of world football's governing body FIFA.

"I think that at the end of the day the 2022 World Cup will not take place in Qatar," Zwanziger said in an interview with Sport Bild Plus.

The former head of the German football federation (DFB) cited high summer temperatures as the reason Qatar would lose the right to host football's global showpiece.

"As Mr Zwanziger himself says, it's his personal opinion," a FIFA spokesman responded to AFP subsidiary SID when asked about the German's statement.

Zwanziger said: "Doctors say, and I had insisted on this point in the protocol, that they cannot guarantee that a World Cup can be held in summer in these conditions."

While Qatar has reportedly developed stadium cooling systems, Zwanziger said "the World Cup involves not only stadiums. There are fans coming from the four corners of the world who will be concerned by the heat".

"The first incident putting a life in danger will be subject to an investigation. And that, nobody in the FIFA Executive Committee would want to reply to."

But in an interview with Die Welt newspaper, Hassan al-Thawadi, secretary-general of the Qatar 2022 organising committee, declared himself "sure that the 2022 World Cup would take place in Qatar".

"No, I'm not worried," he said. "Firstly because there's no basis to lose the World Cup.

"And secondly because it's the first World Cup in the Middle East.

"When people think of this region, it's rather in terms of conflict. The World Cup will be an occasion to unite peoples. It will leave a positive heritage."

Later Monday, the Qatar 2022 World Cup committee released a statement which read: "Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup in 2022, despite comments of FIFA executive committee member Dr Zwanziger, which reflect his personal opinion and not that of FIFA.

"The only question now is when, not if. Summer or winter, we will be ready. We have proven that a FIFA World Cup in Qatar in the summer is possible with state-of-the-art cooling technology.

"We have demonstrated that our cooling works in outdoor areas beyond stadiums. This summer we welcomed fans in Doha to an open-air Brazil 2014 Fan Zone with temperatures cooled to a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius.

"The evolution of environmentally-friendly cooling technologies is an important legacy for our nation, region and for countries with similar climates - promising to expand the reach of hosting major sporting events to countries where it was never thought possible before."

Controversy has plagued FIFA's awarding of the World Cup to Qatar in 2010, with summer temperatures in the Gulf emirate reaching the upper-40s Celsius.

The idea of switching the World Cup to cooler winter months does not sit comfortably with all officials of Europe's big leagues.

Gas-rich Qatar has also come under the spotlight over foreign workers' rights as well as accusations that corruption played a part in winning the right to host the World Cup.

Britain's Sunday Times newspaper has alleged that former Qatari football boss Mohamed Bin Hammam paid more than $US5 million ($A5.55 million) to gain support for the emirate ahead of the vote.

Qatar has strongly denied the allegations.

FIFA's ethic committee is to announce in early 2015 the results of its investigation into the attribution of not only the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, but also the 2018 edition to Russia.

Imo, WC should be moved to Australia as they were second in the voting.

Fifa should compensate Qatar as it was Fifa's fault to award it to them.

Qatar should compensate the workers as they were contracted with that job.

And all Fifa people that awarded it to Qatar should be punished.

A country cannot be Arabic, nor is Algeria an Arab country, strictly speaking.

If FIFA actually do pull the plug on Qatar - which has not happened btw, I second Australia, with selfish reasoning.

I don't think this should matter.

It should go to a country which can sustain it, which is safe to travel to and which can help bring that something special to it.

But moving a summer tournament to the winter will be so stupid. We cant even wait for a single week international break during a league campaign.

As much as I'd like WC in my own backyard again, I think Aussies deserve to host this one. Won't mind at all if goes to another country, tho. Algeria sounds nice.

actually they do Laughing they have some of the lowest foriegn debt in the world ( 2% of GDP ) thanks to their oil and gas revenue .

the problem with algeria would be safety . just last month a player was murdered by a fan who threw a rock at him .
in fact ,algeria might be blacklisted from hosting the AFCON 2017 because of that incident .
