The men who built Qatar’s World Cup dream deserve some of David Beckham’s pay packet

The Guardian says I doubt Nirmala Pakrin knows who David Beckham is, but she knows about Qatar.

Her husband, Rupchandra Rumba, a 24-year-old from Nepal, died in 2019, gasping for breath in a squalid camp for labourers on the outskirts of Doha, while working for a contractor on one of the new World Cup stadiums.

Pakrin received some compensation from insurance schemes her husband had taken out before he left home, but his employer in Qatar paid her less than £1,500.

I visited her near the time in the small room she lived in on the outskirts of Kathmandu with her then six-year-old son, Niraj. “He keeps asking one question,” she told me, “Where’s my dad?”
