DOHA, Nov 11 (AFP): US players on Thursday became the first from a World Cup team to arrive in Qatar, ten days before the tournament starts.

The United States are playing in the finals for the first time in eight years and will be in one of the most politically-charged games when they take on Iran on November 29.

An unknown number of players were on a Qatar Airways jet from New York that was among the first flights to use a new part of Hamad airport that opened Thursday.
