The organizer of the next World Cup is preparing against rather modest opponents…
Heavy for Qatar. The host country of the World Cup (November 20 – December 18) continues its friendlies with an opponent who can surprise observers. Partizan Domaniza is not what is called a typical opposition when preparing for a tournament like the one that will start in three months.
The selection managed by the Spaniard Felix Sanchez Bas, 46, will face this modest amateur formation on August 27, resident of the fifth Slovak division. The Qataris have faced a few clubs this summer: Antwerp (2-2) on July 9 (photo) or Lazio Rome (0-0) on July 30.
Next month are scheduled two meetings, against Canada (September 23) and Chile (27). The 49th nation in the FIFA rankings will face Ecuador, Senegal and then the Netherlands in the first round of the World Cup.
