42 'C degrees recorded at night, in Oman, just down the road from Qatar World Cup 2022.
Good job the 2022 World cup is expected to be played between November & January, but still 25 degrees.
FYI: It's the England football team, not the British football team. Britain includes Scotland and Wales. Players from those nations hardly ever go to the World Cup Finals and their fans certainly don't care about how well England does.your predictions for tonights match for 3rd place, lads n gents!?
i say... belgium is gonna make it. 3:1! sorry brits.
More than that man, last November it was a toastie 35 celsius in Qatar most days, players will collapse and maybe even die because of FIFA's corruption and graft in awarding World Cups.Good job the 2022 World cup is expected to be played between November & January, but still 25 degrees.
@mattmid , I think that the final ends in mid-December 2022, but that is almost a new year alright. I can't believe the big continental leagues like Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga are wearing this as it will add six weeks at least to their mid-winter breaks that will in effect create two football seasons.It really is ridiculous isn't it and just sums up FIFA. Move it to an entirely different time of year (and a different year in part!), interfering with just about every league season. So much for tradition and integrity.
You must have missed this, (BBC article link below), and if you are from the middle east, please try not to be blinkered by national or regional pride. I am Irish and if my tiny country won the rights to host a FIFA World Cup, I would strongly suspect Irish politicians to be involved in graft, kickbacks, bribes and corruption of all kinds.I don't see anything related to corruption. It's just simple, any country in this planet has the right to host a world cup if it presents what it takes, Qatar has what it takes, FIFA won't say no to a country just because of the heat. Moving the tournament to November-December is a good solution. It's just an exception that happens once in a lifetime. Leagues seasons will just have a break in October and I'm sure they will handle it good.
International players will play at max 7 games during November and December, which is the same amount of games they would play with their clubs during the normal seasons. Other players who are not in the world cup will just relax or simply they can keep training and have friendly matches like what is happening right now. Nothing will affect anyone physically. The only thing that will happen is that leagues calendars will be readjusted. At max the season will end in mid June 2022.
Thx for the advise. Never too old to learn something! I’ll keep it in mind when posting.FYI: It's the England football team, not the British football team. Britain includes Scotland and Wales.

And that is exactly why it is 100% not a penalty.Pen was 50/50 for me. Free kick absolute bullocks
