Story on calls for Qatar to be stripped of 2022 World Cup, fake
Jul 17, 2017
A story claiming that 6 Arab nations had written to FIFA demanding that Qatar be stripped of the World Cup in 2022, is fake.
The website that carried the news has also been found to be fake.
However, it does resemble a legit Swiss news outlet, which caused several other major news organisations to report the story as well.
The article had included quotes purporting to be from FIFA President Gianni Infantino.
