FIFA meets over Qatar World Cup

Protesters show world football governing body the red card, as it discusses switching summer tournament to winter.

    The 2022 World Cup in Qatar has taken centre stage on day one of the the FIFA Executive Committee meeting.

    There is still no agreement within FIFA on switching the tournament from summer to winter and the issue of construction workers' rights brought protests at the headquarters in Switzerland.
