COULD CHINA TAKE WORLD CUP 2022 FROM QATAR AFTER XI’S FIFA MEETING

It seems inevitable that the World Cup is on its way to China, either in 2030 or 2034; 2026 is in theory off limits because Qatar will host in 2022, and Fifa doesn’t want the same confederation – in this case Asia – to host successive tournaments.


But away from the official platitudes about “reform and development” and the “Chinese dream”, surely a more interesting matter would have been discussed behind closed doors by Infantino and Xi: whether China would step in if Qatar is stripped of 2022 because of the diplomatic crisis in the Middle East.
