In a surprise turn of events, FIFA says that Qatar is not getting the 2022 Soccer World Cup.

There was already a lot of criticism around Qatar getting to host the 2022 World Cup. Besides the high temperatures the conditions of workers building the stadiums have been in the spotlight. According to Reuters, FIFA executive committee member Theo Zwanziger came out strong against the 22 World Cup in Qatar.

He told the German Sport Bild that he expects that Qatar is losing the World Cup. He says that the reason is the health risk for the players and fans. The scorching high temperatures are too high of a risk for FIFA to take responsibiilty for. This is just Mr. Zwangiger's personal opinion.

If the FIFA will really decide to take away the 2022 World Cup remains to be seen.
