The Qatar 2022 World Cup will be a “dream” for players, says David Beckham

According to former England captain and Qatar 2022 ambassador David Beckham, the upcoming winter FIFA World Cup in Qatar will feature a higher level of football than previous World Cups.
Beckham, one of the most decorated English players in history, believes the World Cup tournament’s timing will encourage players to compete in peak condition.
“Players have played 25 games prior to this World Cup.” As a result, they will arrive energized and eager. Their energy will be at a high level, so I believe what you’ll see on the field will be unlike any other World Cup,” Beckham said in an interview with Al Jazeera.
For the first time in FIFA’s history, the global tournament was moved from its traditional summer schedule to winter due to Qatar’s harsh desert climate.
The decision sparked outrage among European football fans, as ongoing tournaments around the world must be interrupted to accommodate this year’s World Cup.

Nonetheless, Beckham believes that the changes in league schedules caused by Qatar’s World Cup will benefit footballers, resulting in high-intensity competition for fans all over the world.
Beckham recalls playing up to 60 games in the season before competing in the World Cup in an interview with Al Jazeera, which led to fatigue on the field.
Beckham also believes that the small country of Qatar will benefit players because travel time between stadiums will be relatively short.
“It’s a player’s dream.” We’ve had to travel for previous World Cups, and it’s not easy to recover after games. “I would have loved to play in this World Cup,” Beckham said.
The Qatar 2022 ambassador did not name any favorites for the tournament, but wished England well and congratulated Qatar’s Al-Annabi on their World Cup debut.
“It’s always encouraging to see the host country perform well. Qatar has a very good young team that has been together for quite some time. So it would be beneficial for the hosts to perform well for the sake of the country and the region,” the football legend said.
Millions of fans will travel to Qatar in less than two months to witness the world’s largest football event.
