FIFA is considering when to move the tournament to avoid the summer heat, and favours a November-December schedule.

Football's world governing body said last month that the most likely time slots for the tournament would be either January-February or November-December 2022, with the organisation's medical chief warning that temperatures in the Middle East state...

World Cup most searched sports term for Google in 2014

The ESPN FC team debate whether or not Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben is the third best player in the world, behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Luis Suarez's bite on Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup was the No. 4 news story of the year on Google.

The 2014 World Cup was among the top search terms for Google in 2014 both globally and in the United States.

Soccer's biggest event was second in Google's list of top global and U.S. trending searches, with over 2.2 billion searches, in both cases behind comedian and actor Robin Williams in the days following his death.
