Well, now that it seems all the furore surrounding the 2022 World Cup has died down, for now, it’s time to look at the World Cup that’s only three years away. Looking good aren’t we?
The article presents a great picture of the hurdles in terms of preparation though it does fail to mention the issue of racism in Russian football and what would be done to combat that. I guess it looks bleak enough as it is. No luxury hotels for the “FIFA Family” and all. I especially love Sepp Blatter’s quote at the end.
“In my opinion the World Cup in Russia will be able to stabilise all the situation in this region of Europe that is suffering now,” said Blatter in response for calls to move the tournament because of the Ukraine issue. “I am sure that football is stronger than any other movement.”
Your soon-to-be reelected FIFA president ladies and gentlemen.

Great article here. For all the hubbub surrounding Qatar, there is a very real prospect of danger to fans, players etc. at the Russia World Cup. Unfortunately, I have this sinking feeling that something of note, something bad of course, will occur during the World Cup. Three years is still a lot of time to set measures in place but it can’t eradicate however many decades of such actions. Guess we’ll see.
