By Rubén Morales Iglesias: In an unprecedented move, FIFA’s administrative arm have proposed to start the World Cup one day early and with two different starting teams as well, said the BBC.

To conform with tradition that either the hosts or the World Champions play in the opening game, FIFA is set to kick off the World Cup on November 20 instead of November 21 in Qatar, with the host country playing South American rivals Ecuador.

That Group A game had originally been scheduled to be played on November 21 as the third match of the competition.

Qatar-Ecuador replaces the Senegal-Netherlands which was to have been the opener.

The move comes after the South American confederation, Conmebol, asked FIFA to stick with the tradition of either the hosts or World champions playing in the tournament opener.

The bureau of the FIFA council, comprising six confederation presidents, plus FIFA president Gianni Infantino, will make the final decision.
