    Unhappy Fifa world cup finals qatar 2022

    In a year we will know the new champions.
    Due to heat the shortened 4 week tournament will be in November December rather than the usual Northern Summer.

    I have no doubt the matches will be watchable in LOS with a last minute bun fight to see who gets the rights.

    A year out some long shots may be worth a punt for those who live that long.

    Paddy's odd's today

    France joint faves @ sixes with Brazil, England 7-1 bar those

    Might stick a pony on Portugal at 25 or Italy 16-1 as good value, what think you?

    Perhaps we may rightly discuss the corrupt FIFA award, Blatter, Al Thanis, The Hairy Women of Doha, gay rights the thousands of dead brown slaves in issues and confine this to the beautiful game.

    Dates for your diary

    The match schedule was confirmed by FIFA on 15 July 2020. The opening match, featuring the hosts , will be played on 21 November 2022, 1700 THAILAND,

    During the group stage, four matches will be played each day, with kick-off times being
    Qatar Times (LOS add +4 hours so basically all evening) 13:00, 16:00, 19:00, and 22:00 for the first two rounds, and 18:00 and 22:00 for the simultaneous kick-offs of the last round and for knockout stage matches. the final will be played on 18 December 2022 at THAI TIME 22:00 Plan to host aa party if covid rules allow.

    Good luck to all the teams of course this will mean changes to autumn times of all EUFA and EPL La Liga etc

    However I think the next generation of the Anglos need to experience the ecstasy of reaching a final only to lose on penalties to the master race, it is character forming and a great pperparation for being married,struck of the general dental register for being overly familiar with the nurse (godammit thought the patient was zonked, as I did a bit of extra curricular filling).

    I can never fathom the gay desire for marriage do they really want to be as miserable as the rest of us, you'd think rum sodamy and teh cash would suffice even the most Savid sybarite?

    with any luck qatar will be engulfed by a serious covid epidemic next year and coupled with the increasing revulsion felt towards the country for the way it has used slave labour to build the stadia, will ensure the the world cup is cancelled, thereby allowing national leagues to continue uninterrupted by these fifa breaks forced upon them thanks to fifas unbounded lust for domination, influence and money.

    FIFA World Cup 2022: Meet the full list of qualified countries and their groups




    With Costa Rica beating New Zealand for the final place in the 2022 World Cup that will happen in Qatar by the end of the year. We finally have a full list of nations inside their respective groups. Needless to say, there is a short list of countries that are considered favorites to win the tournament but some of them will have a relatively harder road to reach the final stages of the tournament.


    Out of all the countries that made it to this stage, there are at least five of them who are considered favorites to win the cup by the end of it. It's been a long road towards the final stage of the World Cup, especially during pandemic times but we finally made it. Come November, Qatar will become the football capital of the world.

    Which countries have qualified to Qatar 2022?

    The 32 countries qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup are Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Germany, The Netherlands, Uruguay, Croatia, Denmark, Mexico, the United States, Senegal, Wales, Poland, Australia, Japan, Morocco, Switzerland, Ghana, Korea Republic, Cameroon, Serbia, Canada, Costa Rica, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Ecuador. And hosts Qatar will lead the way in the opening match of the tournament.
    Which teams are considered favorites to win the 2022 World Cup?

    Out of all these countries, the top favorites to win the tournament will be in the following order: Argentina, France, Brazil, Portugal, England, Spain, Germany, and Belgium. Potential Cinderellas will be Uruguay, Poland, Canada, Denmark, Croatia, Switzerland, Senegal, the Netherlands, and Wales.

    The rest of the countries don't appear to have a major chance to get far in the tournament.
    How are the groups for the 2022 World Cup formed?



    Inside Group A, hosts Qatar will share the spotlight with Ecuador, Senegal and the Netherlands.

    Group B has England, Itan, United States and Wales in an almost all-English affair. Inside

    Group C, title contenders Argentina lead the charge against Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

    Group D has France, Australia, Denmark and Tunisia.

    Group E will have Spain against Costa Rica, Germany and Japan inside the infamous Group of Death.

    Sector F has Belgium, Canada, Morocco and Croatia. Brazil leads

    Group G against Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. Last but not least, Ronaldo's Portugal leads

    Group H against Uruguay, Ghana and the Republic of Korea.

    First matches kick-off on November 21 and the final is set for December 18.

    GREAT DAMES Stunning Danish Wags BANNED from World Cup in Qatar in blow to Man Utd’s Eriksen and Tottenham’s DENMARK'S World Cup stars are facing an arid time in the desert... after the Danish FA banned their Wags from Qatar.

    The Scandinavians traditionally bring their wives and girlfriends to the finals of major tournaments.

    Laila is also a former Miss Denmark finalistBut the DBU, Denmark's association, has this time refused to take the players' partners.
    DBU spokesman Jakob Hoyer said they had taken their stance to avoid enriching Qatar's economy.
    Manchester United playmaker Christian Eriksen and Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are among those likely to go without due to the veto.
    Other potentially affected squad members include Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen, Leicester duo Jannik Vestergaard and Daniel Iversen, plus Leeds defender Rasmus Kristiansen.

    Meanwhile thumbs down from the Fwoggyies



    Paris joins other French cities in World Cup TV boycott




    Local authorities will not broadcast matches in protest at human rights and environmental abuses in Qatar




    Paris has joined several French cities in announcing they will not show World Cup matches in public places or set up “fan zones” in protest at human rights and environmental abuses in the host nation, Qatar.


    The moves to boycott the competition next month come after what has been described as a “last minute crisis of conscience” by the public authorities.

    Local authorities in Marseille, Lille, Bordeaux, Reims, Nancy, Rodez and the capital have announced they will not install giant television screens as in the past to relay matches.


    “This competition has gradually turned into a human and environmental disaster, incompatible with the values we want to see conveyed through sport and especially football,” Benoît Payan, the mayor of Marseille and head of a leftwing and environmentalist coalition, said in a statement.
    In Lille, the city council unanimously voted not to broadcast World Cup matches. The city’s Socialist mayor, Martine Aubry, said holding the competition in Qatar was “a nonsense in terms of human rights, the environment and sport”.


    In Paris, Pierre Rabadan, a former French rugby international and the deputy in charge of sport at city hall, said there was “no question” of installing fan zones. This is despite the city’s football team, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), being owned by Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar since 2011.
    Strasbourg has also decided not to screen the World Cup. “It is impossible for us not to listen to the numerous alerts from NGOs denouncing the abuse and exploitation of immigrant workers. Thousands of foreign workers have died on the building sites, it’s unbearable,” the city’s ecologist mayor, Jeanne Barseghian, told 20 Minutes.


    ”Strasbourg, the European capital and seat of the European court of human rights, cannot decently condone these abuses, cannot turn a blind eye when human rights are being flouted in this way,” she added.Pierre Hurmic, the ecologist mayor of Bordeaux, said screening the World Cup and setting up fan zones would make the city an “accomplice to this sporting event which represents all the humanitarian, ecological and sporting aberrations”.

    Eric Cantona, the former French international and Manchester United footballer, is also boycotting the World Cup.

    “I will not watch a single match of this World Cup. This will cost me because since I was a kid it’s been an event that I love, that I look forward to and that I watch with passion. But let’s be honest with ourselves. This World Cup makes no sense. The only meaning of this event, as we all know, is money,” he wrote.
    In a communique at the end of last month, the French Football Federation responded to criticism of its “deafening silence” over the forced labour and deaths of migrant workers at World Cup sites. It said the “campaign of stigmatisation” of Qatar was to be “deplored” and that it had defended “human rights and other essential causes on a daily basis”.

    “Taking part in the World Cup doesn’t mean closing one’s eyes and supporting (abuse),” it wrote. The FFF claimed to have “implemented various verification measures concerning the respect of social rights and the application of respectful working conditions at the French team’s base camp” in Qatar.

    The FFF believes the World Cup has brought progress to Qatar. “Even if the reality on the ground is not perfect, this progress is undeniable and positive,” it said.

    Laurent Bodin, an opinion writer for L’Alsace newspaper, wrote: “The call to boycott is legitimate … but it’s a bit late.”

    He added: “Such behaviour cannot be selective. Those calling for screens to be turned off during the World Cup should stop following the news of Paris Saint-Germain, which is financed by Qatar, and many other clubs for which the state-owned airline, Qatar Airways, is a major sponsor.
    “The damage is done because the competition will take place.”

    MESSI ENDING

    Lionel Messi says 2022 World Cup with Argentina will be his last
    The 35-year-old
    Argentina star, who will play in his fifth World Cup, is still seeking his first title at the showpiece tournament (which begins on Nov. 20 this year) and admitted he feels nervous ahead of his last appearance on world football's biggest stage.
    "There's some anxiety and nerves at the same time. It is the last one," Messi said

    Casual sex or alcohol consumption at World Cup could land soccer fans in prison

    Casual sex or alcohol consumption at World Cup could land soccer fans in prison for 7 years in conservative Qatar

    One-night stands and consumption of alcohol could land soccer fans used to liberal Western customs in hot water at the World Cup finals in Qatar this November




    Promiscuous sex is off the table at this winter’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar after authorities warned that any individual caught having sexual intercourse with anyone other than their spouse faces a custodial sentence of up to seven years.

    There are growing concerns that attendees of soccer’s flagship tournament, due to be held for the first time in conservative Qatar in November, will find themselves in trouble with authorities for seemingly innocuous acts in liberal Western society, such as the consumption of alcohol and public displays of affection.

    Drinking alcohol and sexual intercourse outside of marriage, irrespective of an individual’s sexual orientation, are both illegal in the Middle Eastern country and carry a jail term of up to seven years.
    A police source said: “Sex is very much off the menu, unless you are coming as a husband and wife team. There definitely will be no one-night stands at this tournament.

    “There will be no partying at all really. Everyone needs to keep their heads about them, unless they want to risk [at]being stuck in prison.

    “There is essentially a sex ban in place at this year’s World Cup for the first time ever. Fans need to be prepared,” they warned.
    FIFA, soccer’s international governing body, has claimed that “all are welcome” at the World Cup finals but equally insists that “no exceptions” will be made for those who violate the Arab nation’s conservative customs.
    A multitude of concerns have been expressed over the decision to hold the tournament in Qatar, a country with a questionable record on human rights, tolerance of religions other than Islam, and sexual beliefs.
    Last December, the LGBT community expressed their disgust at the hostile decision by Qatari authorities to seize rainbow-colored toys.
    “The ministry urges all citizens and residents to report any merchandise bearing logos or designs contrary to traditions,” Qatari news outlet QNA reported at the time.
    The chief executive of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Nassar al-Khater, has previously told press conferences: “I would like to assure any fan, of any gender, (sexual) orientation, religion, and race, that Qatar is one of the safest countries in the world — and they’ll all be welcome here.”
    Such an invitation does appear to be conditional, however, with al-Khater more recently warning soccer fans that acts such as public display of affection “are frowned upon; it’s not part of our [at]culture – and that applies across the board to everybody.”
