Qatar the choice for the next world cup

June 4 - Dutch football player Ronald de Boer referred to Qatar as the ultimate choice as host for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. De Boer has played for Qatari sides Al Rayyan and Al Shamal and serves as ambassador for the Gulf nation's bid to stage the FIFA World Cup in 2022.


"I think it is the right time for this to happen. Africa has had its chance for the first time this year and now it is the chance for the Arab world to host the World Cup. The decision will be taken in December and they will have 12 years to prepare for such an important tournament," de Boer told journalists on Tuesday.


"They are making a case on why they should have it there and this is not just about Qatar, but the entire Arab world that is ready for a World Cup. By then [2022], we will have 240 million Arabs in the 25-year age group and Qatar is ready for it," he added.
