The song will be performed live for the first time today at the draw ceremony, which is the official ceremony where teams are assigned.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, 2022.
It will be the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world, and the second World Cup to be held entirely in Asia, following the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.
The tournament will be the last with 32 teams, with a 48-team increase planned for the 2026 tournament in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
The reigning World Cup champions France will look to defend their title in Qatar.
The most decorated football competition in Qatar was moved to the summer due to intense heat in the country.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held from late November to mid-December, making it the first tournament not to be held in May, June, or July; it is to be played in a reduced timeframe of around 28 days.
