Fifa President Sepp Blatter has admitted it was “a mistake” to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar because of the extreme heat players will face in the Gulf state.
Speaking to Swiss channel RTS, Mr Blatter said: “Of course, it was a mistake. You know, one makes a lot of mistakes in life.
“The technical report indicated clearly that it was too hot in summer, but despite that the executive committee decided with quite a big majority that the tournament would be in Qatar.”
