    Organisers of Qatar's successful bid to host the 2022 football World Cup have once again denied any wrongdoing in the build-up to the bidding process for the tournament and are confident that it will take place in Middle Eastern country.

    An investigation into the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups was carried out by FIFA's ethics committee following allegations of bribery and corruption.

    There have also been calls for Qatar to be stripped of the hosting rights in wake of those allegations.
