Football can cause real change in Qatar by calling for investigations into deaths and demanding compensation
The Independent says One of the most jarring things is actually how casually it’s being said. After England and a series of other countries confirmed their place at the 2022 World Cup, the talk was naturally of “going to Qatar” as if that isn’t the utterly absurd prospect it seemed right up to December 2010.
That normalisation is of course key to sportswashing. A core idea is that these countries and their vehicles become such a part of everyday conversation that everyone forgets to keep asking questions.
And yet it still doesn’t sound right, because so much of it remains wrong.
