England Legend, David Beckham, has suggested that the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will be like no other edition in the history of the greatest football showpiece, for obvious reasons.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in the Middle Eastern nation of Qatar between November 20 and December 18, 2022. It is the first time that the FIFA World Cup will take place in the latter part of a year.
Beckham who is a Qatar 2022 ambassador believes that players will arrive at the mid-season World Cup full of energy.
“I was lucky enough to play in three World Cups and I know that I went into each of those World Cups playing probably 50 to 60 games in the season,” Al Jazeera quoted Beckham as saying.
“Players are coming into this World Cup after playing 25 games. So they will be arriving fresh and excited. Their energy is going to be at the top level, so I think what you’re going to see on the pitch is probably like no other World Cup.”
Aside from economic reasons, hosting the FIFA World Cup will further boost the development of football in Qatar.
This will be Qatar’s first appearance at the World Cup since the Qatar Football Association (QFA) got affiliated with FIFA in 1972. The Maroon of Qatar are currently ranked 48 by FIFA.
Qatar are in Group A at the 2022 FIFA World Cup together with Senegal, Ecuador, and the Netherlands.
