Soccer-Average temperatures in World Cup hosts Qatar


Oct 1 (Reuters) - European soccer federations agreed last

month that it would be "impossible" to stage the 2022 World Cup

finals in Qatar in the summer as originally planned due to the

searing heat even though the organisers have promised to build

air-conditioned stadiums. FIFA will discuss the issue on Friday.

Here is a look at Qatar's average temperatures throughout

the year in degrees Celsius:
