Blatter Defends Qatar As Hosts Of The 2022 World Cup

FIFA President, Sepp Blatter on Tuesday defended his choice of Qatar as hosts for the 2022 World Cup, stating that criticism of the Gulf country from European media was unwarranted.

“It is not fair when the international media, and especially European media, are taking up the focus of an Arab country here in this, Asia, by attacking, attacking, criticising this country. We are defending it,” Blatter told delegates at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Awards ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.

“We are defending it. We have taken a decision to play a World Cup in the Arabic world and we have taken the decision to play in Qatar and we will go and play this… in 2022 in Qatar,” stressed Blatter.
