He's been saying that for a while, so it's not really anything new. He's looking at the possibility blah blah blah. It won't happen.

Qatar bid for a 32 team cup. Everything is on their side. As much as the neighbours would love to see Qatar having to share it, there's no way Qatar will accept it, especially after all that's happened.

IMO Qatar will just plough on regardless, good or bad WC. It's their baby.

I have to agree with you. Qatar bid for a 32 team tournament and have already been forced into reducing the length from the usual 32 days to 28 days. They might agree to the additional teams if the tournament period is extended, but the likes of the premier league will never let that happen. I expect the feasibility study to be presented at the FIFA council in March and then shelved.
We need to remember that Qatar won the right to host the World Cup with a 32-team World Cup, so at the end of the day, FIFA will take the decision with Qatar, and only if Qatar agrees,” said al-Khater who then gave the strongest hint yet that the tournament will most likely stay at 32 teams.

Stop a second, ask if FIFA or Qatar have more weight in the argument of them sharing it or not.

I honestly think if FIFA want them to share with UAE / Bahrain etc then they can probably make them.

And let's not forget that there's a whole world of politicians out there who would use the sharing as a way to potentially end the GCC crisis?

These things never get fixed in isolation.

The song titled “Pour, oh Rain, in Doha” is accompanied by an illustration showing children at play and wishes for the drowning of Qatar, at times, and considers it a Saudi province, at others.
I'm sure it'll all be cleared up soon.
