End of hostility

2021 has really started in a bright light / way, as one dispute was finally solved after so long, and is affecting the country where the next World Cup is going to be played.
At 05 June 2017 Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates put a ban on everything that comes from Qatar. This diplomatic blockade was ended 42 months (three and a half years) later when last Tuesday the above quartet has agreed to sign a deal of truce. In footballing terms this opens plenty of possibilities. One of it certainly is an opportunity to host plenty of World Cup matches throughout the Middle East (that is going to be staged for the first time in the region) with open borders and free flow of local fans, because one of the 32 teams may be welcomed also in Kuwait, Oman, together with the above mentioned sinners Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates as suggested countries to host.
