The FIFA Task Force set up to recommend the best time of year to stage the 2022 World Cup in Qatar were always in an impossible position, from the moment they sat down to consider the options.But Tuesday's recommendation to stage it over November and December is probably the best option for all – even though Europe's major clubs disagree.The European giants will have seven years to get used to the idea that they must reschedule five or six matches in the winter of 2022, for the first time in almost 100 years of World Cup football.A winter World Cup later in the year would disrupt around 50 major leagues around the world for a few weeks, as well as holding up the Champions and Europa Leagues.The Task Force is also considering staging the Confederations Cup in June or July 2021 outside Qatar while the FIFA Club World Cup could be held in Qatar in November and December 2021 as the World Cup test event.
