Qatar World Cup to feature 40,000-seater stadium designed like skullcap

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden and Shaka Hislop discuss the latest decision made by FIFA that will see the first winter World Cup final set for Dec. 18 in Qatar.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said it makes sense to hold the 2022 Qatar World Cup in the winter months, but admitted it will have an impact on European league schedules.

Qatar World Cup organisers have presented plans for the 40,000-seat Al Thumama Stadium that will be used in 2022.

The design by Qatari architect Ibrahim M. Jaidah is based on the "gahfiya" skullcap worn under the gutra, or male headscarf, in the Gulf.

Al Thumama Stadium, in the Doha suburb of Al Thumama, is due to be finished in 2020 and will be used for matches up to the quarterfinals in 2022.

In a bizarre attack on the Socceroos, Blatter said he came to the conclusion after watching Ange Postecoglou's team play on television during the recent Confederations Cup.

"I saw them on TV yesterday. They looked like a rugby team," Blatter told Swedish newspaper Expressen.

"Some of their players were overweight. They need to work out more. They need...

Brazil pass Germany in FIFA rankings; Switzerland, Poland in top five

Michael Ballack calls on Germany's young players to step up and replace the team's retired stars ahead of the World Cup.

Brazil are back on top of the FIFA rankings, replacing World Cup holders Germany.

Brazil haven't played a game since June, while Germany were last in action a month ago when they beat Chile to collect the Confederations Cup in Russia.

The FIFA rankings are based on results over a four-year period.

Argentina retained third place, Switzerland rose to fourth -- their highest position since the first rankings 24 years go -- and Poland moved into an all-time best fifth.

The United States climbed nine...
