FIFA is considering relying on the penalty shootout in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Fifa works to solve the penalty shootout after the end of the 90-minute draw, in order to determine the winner, fearing that the teams draw the same balance and the difficulty of determining the winner
Where it will work from the outset to resolve the crisis by its inception.
