    The countdown is on for the 2022 Qatar World Cup, which will be the first time the tournament is played in the Middle East.

    Initially, a blockade imposed on Qatar by its Gulf neighbours delayed some construction material getting into Qatar.

    But organisers now say all eight stadiums are on schedule - with several expected to be ready two years before the World Cup kicks off
