The Top Five Most Memorable World Cup Goals

The two-day conference was attended by representatives from competing countries, the United Nations, FIFA, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), Europol, Interpol, and other international and local organizations, as well as other significant players.

At a conference in Doha, FIFA reminded police chiefs from competing nations around the world that the major security problem for the 2022 World Cup will be controlling hundreds of thousands of football fans in Qatar's capital.

One of the tournament's main problems, according to FIFA Security Director Helmut Spahn, is being the most geographically constrained World Cup ever.

Moreover, to get football fans across Qatar, police are planning a complex system of road closures and extra public transportation.
