Gianni Infantino on his first visit to Qatar as FIFA president insisted on Friday that the 2022 World Cup would be hosted there as planned.

Asked if the Gulf state would keep the tournament despite allegations of labour abuse and corruption, Infantino told reporters in Doha: "Of course, the World Cup will take place in Qatar in 2022."
