The decision to give them the world cup was f**king crazy.

You know it's bad when pariah states break off diplomatic and economic ties with ya.

It was bad enough giving them the world cup to start with as CY2K says but everything about it since then just makes it look even worse - allegations of corruption to get the tournament, disruption to several club seasons to get the tournament moved to winter, slave labour and the poor working conditions (which has resulted in several deaths) to get the stadiums built...now this!
 
Worst thing is I wouldn't be surprised if this latest development still isn't enough of a game-changer to force FIFA into growing a pair and taking the tournament off them? Angry

Quite simply, they can't.  Or at least not yet.
 
In terms on contracts, sponsorship etc. the 2018 and 2022 World Cups are tied together.  You can't cancel one without the other.  Far too late to take next years tournament away from Russia as well.
 
The cynical view is that FIFA will wait until after Russia 2018 to take the 2022 World Cup away from Qatar.  Though frankly I'll be surprised id FIFA had the guts to do that.

I have never believed that Qatar will host it and I still don't, it will be moved late in the day to somewhere ready to host it at the drop of a hat.
As ridiculous as giving the tournament to Qatar was, it pales in comparison with Saudi Arabia complaining about them promoting ISIS and stinks of the Saudis covering up their own links.

Just thinking that the 2018 World Cup could be the last time we see Ronnie (32) and Messi (30) playing at a World Cup.

The top 3 players I've seen are those two and Zidane. All different type of players but all great to watch.

Who do you reckon will be the best player (s) in the world in 5 years time -


Mbappe
Dybala
Neymar
Asensio
Jesus
Lemar

I'd say if he doesn't retire again, Messi would prob have one more WC left in him but 2018 defo the last in his prime.

Neymar is probably next in line after Messi and Ronaldo to be the next superstar.

I think he'll take the next WC by storm given he is playing in French League he shouldn't be too exerted  (no offense to Ligue 1 )

The final will be today in 4 years time!

With the World Cup and Xmas drinking, it’s going to be a crazy month.

Lots of things I hate about WC2022 but I really think they're missing a beat by not having the final about 10th Jan, imagine a Christmas Schedule of World Cup games, 4 games back to back Christmas Day Clap
