The Qatari national football team on Saturday started its local camp, which will continue until next Wednesday, as part of the preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, which will be held from November 20 to December 18.
The team participated in a first training session at Jassim bin Hamad Stadium in Al Sadd Club, and will continue on Sunday with a second session which will be open to the public and the media, according to the Qatar Football Association (QFA).
The open training is aimed at providing communication between the team and the fans as part of the promotional campaign launched by the association to support the Qatari team in the World Cup.
The Qatari team delegation will leave next Wednesday, at the end of the short local camp, for Marbella, Spain, to start a new camp there, which is an extension of the camps that started last June in Spain and then Austria and continued until last month.
The Qatari team had played three friendly matches in the Austrian capital, Vienna, during the FIFA international window for September, where coach Sanchez fielded some of the substitute players along with young elements, in order to give them the opportunity before settling on the 26-man final list that will compete in the World Cup, which will be submitted to FIFA no later than November 13.
