Despite their lack of success in the last World Cup, Qatar has been making improvements to its team since winning the bid to host the event. The Persian Gulf state is preparing to take its place as the host of the tournament, which will be held from November 21 to December 18. The event will serve as a showcase for the country and organisers have already set up tents and other amenities near the sealine and desert. Guests will be able to stay in specially designated villages and hotels, as well as have access to two cruise ships.
Qatar is competing in World Cup qualifiers, but it is not guaranteed to make it to the tournament itself. The host will have to finish fourth in the group to qualify for the finals, and it will be battling Peru for fourth place.
The host country will be making its first appearance on the world stage as a host nation, and the controversy over its selection hasn’t eased over the past 12 years. Qatar has been accused of human rights abuses, but the country wants to distance itself from such accusations.
Qatar is the first Arab country to host a World Cup, and it has a host of hotels and other accommodations available for fans who want to visit the country. The country will also provide 1,000 traditional tents for visiting fans. Fans will also be able to stay in specially designated villages.
The host nation has also made a big investment in a local academy called Aspire Academy. The facility is located in Doha, and is expected to attract a huge number of visitors during the World Cup. Aside from the Aspire Academy, Qatar has invested heavily in the country’s stadiums and other facilities. All eight of the country’s stadiums are connected to the country’s Metro system, which means fans will be able to easily travel between them.
After the first round of matches, the top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout round. The second round of games will take place on Thursday, June 13, and Friday, June 14, and will begin at 19:30 GMT-5.
The first round of World Cup qualifiers will conclude this week. Egypt beat Senegal 1-0 in the first round, and Algeria won a 1-0 away tie against Cameroon. Tunisia secured a spot in the tournament despite a 0-0 draw against Mali. Tunisia’s coach, Jalel Kadri, said the home match would be harder than the first leg, but the team was still able to secure its spot.
The winner of the Oceania World Cup qualifiers will take on CONCACAF’s fourth-place team in an intercontinental playoff in June. Uruguay is trying to secure a fourth-place finish against Peru, and the two teams could meet in the play-off if Uruguay wins its game in Montevideo on Friday.
The third-place game will take place on December 17 in the UAE. This will determine whether Qatar gets its spot in the tournament. It hasn’t qualified for the tournament since 1974, when it played as Zaire.
