FIFA president Sepp Blatter on Thursday said it was a mistake to choose Qatar in the Middle East to host the 2022 World Cup because of the country's searing summertime climate.

When asked if it was a mistake choosing as host Qatar because of the country's high temperatures in summer months, Blatter said in an interview with Swiss RTS station: "Yes, of course."

"You know, everyone makes mistakes in life," he added.
