Teams boycotting the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

Qutar was selected as the guardian country for the FIFA World cup in 2022 in the year 2010. But human right issue occurred with the country as more than 6,500 migrant workers have died in Qatar since the country was awarded the right to host the World Cup back in 2010.

Because of this issue most of the teams had decided to boycott the match. German players lined up before their qualifying game against Iceland with “human rights” spelled out across T-shirts on Thursday (March 25). Following that Norwegian team wore tops with the message “human rights” on and off the pitch.

But ,Roberto Martínez who has Belgium team to the top of the FIFA rankings says that boycotting the FIFA 2022 will be a big mistake and he also mentioned that teams should have accepted the situation as boycotting is not the solution for the issue.

He has told that “We know that there’s been big issues, but we know as well that because of the World Cup, the Qatari government is already putting things in place and will follow all the human rights institutions” (CNN)
