I get the feeling things are going to get a bit spicy leading up to what has to be the most controversial World Cup award in history so here's a thread to keep an eye on it all.

Here to kick things off is Norway last night

I posted this in another thread but it's worth reposting it in here:

Of the 22 people voted to award the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar, 15 of them are are now either banned from FIFA for life, suspended, imprisoned, or fighting extradition to the USA to face federal charges. Only one still actually works for FIFA

Hope to see more of this kind of stuff. Hopefully the negative PR outweighs any gains they hope to have made

How refreshing would it be for one of the big football nations to boycott the whole thing?

I can't see teams boycotting the finals in Qatar, but wonder if we'd see individual players doing so, or publicly shaming the organisers whilst over there:sherlock:

Qatar deserves to be boycotted but where do you

I'd like to see that happen. They think they've achieved a great PR coup do anything that undermines that is great in my book. Open dissent is a great start but it would be brilliant if a top class player said no chance. I can't see an FA boycotting it as they'd be accused of playing politics and worries their players might undermine them.
