Qatar?! It’s glorious win for
petro-dollars football. And for intolerance (homosexuality is illegal in Qatar, for example). Hurrah! … Tis a joke decision, frankly, and more proof that FIFA is a repulsive organisation – not so long ago, the Qatar bid was deemed “high risk”. So what happened?
The Australian and USA’s bid teams must be gutted – as gutted as England’s exemplary bid team.
We’re now all just waiting for Sepp Blatter to shuffle off. Then maybe FIFA can at last become the transparent, honourable organisation football needs it to be.
