Britain's FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce will oppose any move to hold the 2022 Qatar World Cup final as late as December 23.
The task force announced its recommendation for a "late November to late December" winter World Cup following a meeting in Doha, and also said that the tournament should be shortened.
Boyce, from Northern Ireland, said moving the World Cup to the winter was a "common sense" decision but that a final on December 23, which is reportedly one of the options, would be too close to Christmas and the traditional festive matches.
I think that is too close to Christmas - that's the only reservation I would have and I would like it a week earlier, but I want to wait until the FIFA executive committee meeting to hear all the details about the dates.
It will cause a lot of disruption but it is eight years away and people should have enough time to make it work.
To paraphrase Jerome Valcke: “It’s happening, now stop your moaning and get on with it.”
