“We have agreements and a contract with Qatar, but it’s still too early to know if there will be 32 teams or more.

“For now, anything is possible. With 48 teams, many ‘regional’ tensions would be solved so I don’t want to close the door to this opportunity.”

Accuweather reports temperatures in Qatar between June and July can hit as high as 41.3°C, forcing FIFA into the controversial reschedule.
