I don't know much about football, but I do know it involves a lot of running around. I know this because when I was at school, we had to play football once per week, in winter, and we ran around a lot because if you didn't, you'd freeze.
I don't know much about Qatar, but I do know it's very hot there. And I also know that running around for an hour and a half while it's very hot, is pretty horrible.
So when they announced "Qatar", these two facts were pointed out. As a way to deal with this, they moved the contest from June/July to November/December.
We're hearing now of allegations of corruption at Fifa. Many people will not be surprised by this. And I can't help feeling that the choice of Qatar was just trying to push it too far.
