FIFA slammed for playing Peru vs Australia World Cup qualifier in summer Qatar heat

Peru’s assistant coach Nobi Solano criticized FIFA for allowing the country and Australia to host the World Cup qualifying play-offs in Qatar.

The two sides will face off at Al Ryan to decide who will be promoted to Qatar later this year.

Solano disputed the decision, stressing that the World Cup had been postponed from the summer to November because it was decided that conditions were unsafe for the players.

What did Solano say about FIFA?

“The game starts at 9am and they say the stadium is air-conditioned so it will be fresh when we play,” he said, according to the news.

“But we trained in Spain until this weekend because it was too hot to train in Qatar during the day.

“We were asked to play under the same conditions that decided the World Cup could not be played.

“For a game of this magnitude with so many stakes I’m not sure if it’s really good for us or for Australia. Though of course it’s the same for both teams.”

FIFA continues to be criticized for the World Cup

The decision to allow Qatar to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup has been a controversial issue since it was first announced.

The country’s human rights record, its treatment of LGBTQ+ people and the alleged abuse of migrant workers in stadium construction have been criticized in recent years.

Germany’s managing director of football, Olver Bierhof, criticized the country this week: “Such an attitude towards homosexuals is completely unacceptable. It does not reflect my views at all.

“What award criteria for the World Cup does FIFA actually apply? Because giving tournaments is the sharpest sword to drive the necessary changes.”

Human rights organization Amnesty International has published a report on working conditions around the World Cup, claiming many were subjected to “forced labour”.

Netherlands boss Luis van Gaal criticized FIFA for awarding the tournament to Qatar, saying: “It’s about money, it’s about commercial interests. That’s what counts at FIFA.”
