Qatar 2022 SWC a 'nightmare'
London - The head of England's Football Association has warned on Tuesday that moving the 2022 Soccer World Cup in Qatar to the start of the year would be a "logistical nightmare."
Since the contentious vote in December, FIFA president Sepp Blatter has said he expects the event to be staged in early 2022 due to concerns about the blistering summer heat in the desert nation.
While moving the World Cup to a cooler time of year would be better for players, it would throw domestic football schedules across Europe into turmoil before and after the tournament.
FA general secretary Alex Horne says that "the notion of playing in Qatar just leaves me in a cold sweat at the moment."
