Qatar 2022 could be ‘best ever’ World Cup – Belgium boss Martinez

This year’s World Cup in Qatar, according to Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, might be one of the finest ever.

The competition is often held in the summer, but this year it will be held from November 21 to December 18, when the weather will be slightly colder.

This also implies that it will fall in the middle of most leagues’ seasons.

“There has always been a moan at international level that we always get the players when they are fatigued,” Martinez told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I think this could be the best World Cup or international tournament that we have seen just because the physical level of the players will be at an optimum.

“Everyone will be within 1,000 playing minutes having been just a few weeks after the start of the season – this is the perfect moment for players to go and play for their national team.”

Martinez’s team is one of the favorites to win this year’s World Cup, which will most likely be the final opportunity for Belgium’s ‘golden generation’ to win a major title.

Because of worries over Qatar’s human rights record, the choice to organize the event in the country has been heavily criticized.
