As a result, the United Arab Emirates submitted a formal request to Federation Internationale de Football Association to have Qatari officials removed from their upcoming game against Thailand.

The Associated Press reported on Sunday that a referee from Singapore has been drafted in to replace one from Qatar for the UAE's match against Thailand in Bangkok on Tuesday.

According to Federation Internationale de Football Association, a request from the UAE to prevent Qatari referees from officiating their upcoming match against Thailand was approved.

Infantino said he is maintaining regular contact with the "highest authorities" in Qatar and the 2022 tournament's organising committee.

Infantino in an interview given to the Swiss newspaper Le Matin Dimanche said that the diplomatic relation will be restored by the time Qatar hosts the 2022 World Cup.

Qatar has since denied the allegations, but relations between the host of nations have remained frosty, prompting the request for a change in officiating presence.

"The decision has been taken for sporting reasons and in view of the current geopolitical situation", Federation Internationale de Football Association said in a statement.

"We are confronted with a diplomatic crisis in Qatar at the moment".

Infantino has been visiting South Korea since last week for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup final between England and Venezuela that was held on Sunday. "I am confident the region will return to a normal situation".

The International Trades Union Confederation estimates that as of 2017, as many as 1,000 migrant workers have died each year building World Cup facilities in Qatar. Additionally, Saudi Arabia sealed shut Qatar's only land border, impacting a significant source of food imports for the peninsula nation.
