Small Middle Eastern country — known for poor human rights record – is the host of the World Cup, but does Qatar really WANT it to start? Any government official responsible for bringing the world’s biggest sporting event to their home country should want it to be enough to be proactive, but the enthusiasm surrounding the event from locals seems non-existent. in.
The host country has never qualified for a World Cup before, but has automatically received a bid to host the World Cup inside its borders and have its first match on Sunday. With 12 years of controversy and anticipation leading up to this moment, when the world was watching the only game on the opening day of the tournament, Qatar’s fans had already left after halftime.
I can’t think of any other country in the world where fans would do that. Remember 2014 and how passionate the Brazilian fans were. Now imagine if it was Brazil’s first time competing at the World Cup. Do you think the supporters will leave just because the team loses? No, the fans were probably still in their seats long after the janitors finished sweeping the floor. These fans stayed and watched in tears as Germany beat Seleção Canarinho 7-1 in the semi-finals. There are plenty of reasons why Brazil shouldn’t host the tournament, but it’s clear that many want it.
Qatar is the first country to make its World Cup debut as a host country since Italy in 1934. Ironically, Italy is the only host country ever required to qualify. Not only did the Italians make it through the qualifiers, but the Azzuri won the whole thing.
Spoiler alert: Qatar will not win this World Cup. Damn, Qatar has no business to play in this tournament.
The quality of the team and the indifference from the fans both point to a fact that everyone knows, that this is one of the last places that should host the event. How do I contribute to the essay? Just wait until you hear how I think they got it. Money may have changed handsHowever Qatar denies bribery allegations.
Leaving aside the disregarded government and terrible human rights record, it still doesn’t make any sense. The 2026 World Cup will take place in the United States, Canada and Mexico, three countries that already have the necessary infrastructure to host. No new stadiums are under construction, and only a US stadium (Arrowhead Stadium) will need an upgrade. This will significantly reduce the number of construction worker deaths, including estimated around 6,500 to prepare for the tournament in Qatar.
To bribe you to host events, let thousands of dead build stadiums, and then leave those same stadiums virtually empty during the game like you’re Texas A&M fans It is unreasonably disrespectful behavior.
The opening ceremony showcased every home video of the country’s princes playing football that they could find to show that they really have “football culture”. No one is happy that the World Cup is there, and that obviously includes the people of Qatar. If the Arab nation doesn’t really want it, it looks like they bought it because they could.
