In Qatar this evening (Monday) Carlos Queiroz was appointed as the coach of the national team with a clear and stated goal: the 2026 World Cup to be held in the USA, Mexico and Canada.
As you remember, the host of the last World Cup built on a quality tournament in front of the home crowd, but in practice ended the early stage with three losses and no points.
The 69-year-old Quiros coached the Iranian national team in the last World Cup (eliminated already in the group stage), and earlier he coached Portugal in 2010 and then Iran in the World Cup and even the Colombian national team.
In the earlier past, the Portuguese served as Alex Ferguson's assistant at Manchester United and coached Real Madrid for one season.
In the official announcement of the Qatari association, it was written: "Carlos Queiroz has been appointed as the coach of the national team until after the 2026 World Cup. Queiroz has a lot of knowledge and experience in Asian football. We hope that he will lead us to success."
