Yesterday our company,in our daily morning meeting, asked us if anyone wants to watch the England game on Monday at 1pm UK time. If they did they can take a late lunch and make the other hour up during the week.

Only one person said yes so show's the interest, and a few of us are football fans.

Hahahaha .. Brilliant!!!

My only interest is for Wales and England to play as many games as possible and return knackered and the USA Team return their Leeds players nicely relaxed and warmed up ...

‘Crass’ and an ‘insult’. FIFA president criticized for speech on Qatar’s human rights ahead of World Cup

FIFA President Gianni Infantino’s near hour-long speech on the eve of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been described as “crass” and an “insult” to migrant workers by human rights groups.

In an explosive monologue at the start of a news conference in Doha, Infantino – the boss of world soccer’s governing body – accused Western critics of Qatar’s human rights record of hypocrisy.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino attends a press conference at the Qatar National Convention Center (QNCC) in Doha on November 19, 2022, ahead of the Qatar 2022 World Cup football tournament. - Infantino hit back at Western critics of Qatar's human rights record at his opening press conference of the World Cup on November 19, blasting their "hypocrisy". 

“What we Europeans have been doing for the last 3,000 years, we should be apologizing for the next 3,000 years before starting to give moral lessons,” he said. “Reform and change takes time. It took hundreds of years in our countries in Europe. It takes time everywhere, the only way to get results is by engaging … not by shouting.”

The tournament, which starts on Sunday, is the first World Cup to be held in the Middle East, but it has been mired in controversy, with much of the build-up focusing on human rights, from the death of migrant workers and the conditions many have endured in Qatar, to LGBTQ and women’s rights.

Infantino, despite admitting things weren’t perfect, said some criticism was “profoundly unjust” and accused the West of double standards.

FIFA are put on alert over integrity of Qatar matches just 48 hours before they kick off World Cup as governing body is warned about an unusually HIGH number of penalties being awarded to the hosts in behind-closed-doors warm-ups.
