The human rights organisation further alleges that some have been forced into unpaid labour. The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre has traced “abuse cases to the construction of seven of the eight tournament stadiums, ” reports the I Paper. They write:It is alleged the vast majority of abuse cases relate to non-payment of salaries, including unpaid wages and failure to honour benefits. But there have been frequent health and safety breaches, the new report claims, that have led to death, injuries and dangerous working conditions.

Wales: Gareth BaleThere are some quality players in the Welsh side, but who else was it going to be? We can talk until we're red in the face about what went wrong/whether it actually went particularly wrong success-wise at Real Madrid (5 Champions Leagues, 4 Club World Cups, 3 European Super Cups, 3 LaLiga titles, 1 Copa del Rey and 3 Spanish Super Cups, anyone? ), but Bale is one of Europe's greatest players and is still a global superstar. Regardless of domestic form, he always seems to turn up for his country, with nigh-on-unbelievable performances in the previous two international tournaments. After all, we all know it's Wales, golf, Madrid. In that order.

The English like to pretend they're as indifferent as Jon Hamm in that Mad Men meme about it all, but let's be real: nothing could demand all the Copium of the world more than a banana skin upset against the Welsh — as nearly happened, by the way, against Scotland at the last Men's Euros. All of that said, Wales isn't even England's closest rival on the men's rankings going into this tournament, pulling up at 19th between Senegal and Sweden, just ahead of Iran's #23 (the USA, for what it's worth, are at #14 and England #5). Yeah, Wales have Bale and a variety of lower-table Prem stars (plus ex-Arsenal king Aaron Ramsey) but the skipper's getting on a bit and the quality of golf over in Qatar is yet to be seen.
Not reassuring, that. The climateDuring Qatari summers, temperatures reach more than 50 °C — conditions deemed unplayable by medical professionals in the country as early as 2010. Five years later, it was determined that, to mitigate the effect of Qatar's atypically hot climate, the event would be hosted in the winter months for the first time in its history, despite wide-ranging backlash across the footballing world. From disruption to domestic leagues, to prized players taking more risks for a shot at glory, the winter tournament is being looked at with a mixture of irritation and trepidation by many clubs.
Expect them to play a massive part in Qatar, even if France's Euros performance last year left a little to be desired. Poland: Robert LewandowskiWe don't want to show too much striker bias, but Lewandowski — who just moved to Barcelona at the age of 33, though he was among the slate of new signings to register late for La Liga this season — is an all-timer of a centre forward. He netted 238 goals in 253 apps in eight years at Bayern Munich, and regularly shows up for the national team, bagging himself 76 goals in 132 games.

There's no question: if Poland do well at the Qatar World Cup, it'll be up to the skipper. Belgium: Kevin De BruyneAh, the tale of the Belgian golden generation — what a vindicating bit of schadenfreude their perpetual disappointment has been. Yeah, Roberto Martinez's team haven't really delivered on the promise of their squad on paper, stacked with the likes of De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku — all three, at some point of their careers, considered among the best to lace up their boots — but still, the 31-year-old Man City midfielder is their key asset. Injuries aside, he'd walk into any national team; any team, for that matter. Argentina: Lionel MessiThe Argentinians boast a swathe of high-flying attacking options, from Ángel di María and Mauro Icardi to central dynamo Lautaro Martinez, but none can boast such superiority as Messi.
Yep, England and the USA might boast a “special relationship” in the realm of geopolitics, but when it comes to the grass of the football pitch, nothing gets our backs up more than the mention of "soccer". England vs WalesLook, you don't need to scroll through Twitter on a Wembley game day or turn to an old Six Nations ad to know that the other home nations, as a rule, absolutely hate England.
And then there was American Tim Howard's valiant man-of-the-match performance between the sticks at World Cup 2014, keeping a million balls out of his net right to the death. Also against Belgium, funnily enough. For their part, Iran managed a decent innings for themselves at World Cup 2018, winning four points in a group with Portugal, Spain and Morocco, including a draw against the former Euro winners. However, questions have been raised over Iran's involvement in the tournament, after a violent response by authorities to anti-government protests following the death of Mahsa Amini.
That's compounded by the innumerous allegations of worker abuse and slavery in constructing new stadia at breakneck speed, and the fears of LGBTQ+ fans set to travel to a country where homosexuality remains banned by law. More on those points below.

(Photo by Christopher Pike/Getty Images for Supreme Committee 2022)Christopher Pike/Getty ImagesWhen is England playing in World Cup 2022? After finding themselves in a largely favourable group in Russia in 2018, England's group at the Qatar World Cup has been broadly dubbed the “group of death, ” at least if rudimentary metrics are anything to go by: England's Group B boasts the unwelcome distinction of having the highest average FIFA ranking of all the group stage pools.
USA vs IranAside from the, y'know, Argo of it all, the US will be desperate to get one back over the Iranians after their catastrophic humiliation in a surprise 2-1 loss at the Stade de Gerland in 1998, described as the “most politically charged game in World Cup history” by the Guardian. But the USMNT is in pretty good shape now, with a cornucopia of young talents: they've got the likes of Chelsea's Christian Pulisic and Lille's Timothy Weah up front, with Leeds' Tyler Adams and Juventus' Weston McKennie supporting in the midfield.
Wales vs Iran kicks off at 1 p. local time (10 a. Wales vs England kicks off at 10 p. local time ( 7 p. Is the Qatar World Cup the most controversial sports tournament ever? Since the 2022 World Cup was awarded to Qatar twelve years ago (then ranked 113 in the world, and having never qualified for the tournament off their own back) the contest has been mired by more controversy than the turn-of-the-century England squad could conjure on a night out in Manchester. Ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter and Theo Zwanziger, one-time head of the German footy association, have gone so far as to suggest giving Qatar the World Cup was a “mistake, ” with allegations of corruption — not least bribery of the bid committee — casting a long, dark shadow over both FIFA's rep and the tournament itself. England's great footballing stalwart and crisps-lover Gary Lineker, for his part, had harsh words for the World Cup decision in conversation with British GQ back in 2014.
As reported by the BBC, a group of Iranian football and sports personalities has asked FIFA to suspend the Iranian Football Association, stating that although no official legislation exists, Iran's effective ban on women entering football grounds opposes FIFA's own rules. The group joins human rights organisation Open Stadiums in their call for similar action last month. England vs USARemember Rob Green? Last time England faced off against the Americans at a major tournament, the then-West Ham keeper fumbled an errant ball into his own goal, our greatest humiliation against our centuries-long frenemy since a bunch of tea was chucked into Boston harbour. No one has heard from him since. Now Jordan Pickford (or — hear us out — maybe Aaron Ramsdale) will be sweating buckets at the prospect of a similar slip.
“It makes you feel sick, actually, the whole FIFA thing, ” he told Alistair Campbell when asked about the then-next two World Cups being awarded to Russia and Qatar. “The corruption at the top level is nauseating. Sepp Blatter likewise has run it like a dictatorship for so long and he comes out with so much nonsense.

Why? He's Messi. No further elaboration needed. England: Harry KaneKane has had his share of flak as captain of the English men's team, variously accused of not showing up in the big tournaments (despite a Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup, and important goals against Germany, Ukraine and Denmark at the Euros). But here's the truth: if Kane, unequivocally one of the best out-and-out centre forwards in the world, is firing, England becomes a significantly more dangerous prospect. And it's not just his prowess in front of goal: his ability to ping precision passes out to the wide runners has been a huge asset for Spurs over the past half-decade. Just imagine Sterling and Saka getting on those.
