FIFA member Michel D'Hooghe has claimed it will be 2015 at the earliest before a final decision is made on the dates of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Asked when a FIFA taskforce might make a decision about moving the tournament to the winter, the Belgian said: "At the earliest in 2015. We need some concrete information - this will not be done in two days."
However, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said: ""It cannot be later than 2015 - probably the end of 2014."
