    He's talking about Russia and the Roberto Carlos incident.
    It still happens in this country though. From the top of my head: Ashley Young for Aston Villa against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

    Once the tournament is over the stadiums will be donated to poor african countries.

    Tell me that isn't something worthy.
    Eh? So they're going to just dismantle and transport them to a selected group of African countries?

    That's pretty cool.

    I'm against all racism as I imagine you are but like you said if it still is a problem in England then using racism as an argument against Russia hosting the world cup doesn't hold much weight now does it?

    Pretty much.
    They will keep the main stadium which they need for their project and donate the other 5.

    From someone who has lived in Qatar for the good part of my whole life I sincerely give all the haters the biggest middle finger I can muster.

    Give me one good reason why they don't deserve it...too hot??? Well I watched a match in a stadium a few years back and it was 18 degrees inside and 35 outside...this is a 10 year old stadium which was revamped, imagine new stadiums built with heat in mind.

    No football legacy? Football is the main sport there, in fact your hard pushed to find someone who doesn't actually play it. Qatar trains their players young, so by 2022 your going to see some kids that have been playing football 5 hours a day from the day they could walk.

    No-one using the stadiums? Sorry are we confusing this which the 2012 olympics...you don't quite understand just how much this will benefit the youth and sports teams of qatar. And as someone mentioned, they're can be broken down, and rebuilt in other countries.

    Problem getting between the stadiums? Ever been to Doha...you can drive from one side to the other quicker than you could drive a few miles in London. Plus the metro thats being developed and that water taxi systems, you sir are looking at the most compact world cup in history...unlike Russia it doesn't take plane journey's to get from one side of the country to the other.

    Alcohol problems...I'll give you that one right now, sorry that the laws of muslim countries don't satisfy you, but I've seen this country change before my own eye's in 10 years to a sprawling metropolis, I cant wait till 2022...

    Their ideas are quite impressive but they don't serve alcohol and the temperatures are ridiculous. Even if they do serve alcohol, think of the dehydration

    Australia deserved it to be honest

    Spot on.

    Can't wait to go to the Middle East in 2015, which by then, construction plans will be in place thereabouts, for the 2022 WC.

    Get the **** over yourselves. Every country deserves a fair shot.

    If it's a bomb, fair enough, criticise. Till then STFU unless you have something intelligent to say.
    You need to get over yourself.

    Qatar has no football league. No football system in place at all. So it's building loads of stadia. That will never be used again.

    Austrailia should have had this world cup. Would have improved the reputation of the A-League. They attract good crowds so the stadium builds/upgrades wouldn't be wasted.

    Blatter couldn't even try and hide the absolute obvious bungs he recieved.

    :facepalm2:

    No matter what Qatar try and do. It's a waste of money. No-one in Qatar will benefit.

    British laws don't satisfy muslims. We accomodate their preferences/beliefs etc.

    No reason why you can't accomodate our preferences/beliefs for just a month.

    You literally don't know how stupid you sound right now...

    Qatar does have a football league like most Middle Eastern countries, in fact you'll find a lot of european football players 'retire' into it, meaning they'll coach teams or play.

    How will no one benefit...all I want is one reason, one reason ok?

    And Australia? Have fun spending hundreds of pounds trying to get from one match to the other

    Why should they? If going to their country you should respect their religious beliefs. Besides, alchohol is allowed in Qatar (certain clubs, restaurants, hotels and Pearl Island) and extended fan drinking zones will be created during the World Cup.

    They've had a FA and league system since the early 60s. To put this into conext, this is ten years before the country ceased becoming a British protectorate.

    I'm not saying I would've chosen Qatar, and prefer Australia myself, though this is largely for political reasons and concerns regarding human rights abuses and the safety of gay fans in particular. But Qatar has been chosen so best of luck to them.

    Someone told me they hadn't. Oh well.

    From one match to the other in austrailia? You do realize flights to Austrailia as a whole can be cheaper than flights to Qatar.

    I can't think of one 'retired' player playing in Qatar.

    End of the day Qatar bought this World cup off Fifa. It should have went to Australia. They've never had a world cup. Nor has that continent. But they played by the rules. As did England and look where it got them.

    Famous footballers (not necessarily African) who have played in the Qatari league: -

    Jay Jay Okocha, Abedi Pele, Frank De Boer, Frank LeBouef, Marcel Desailley, Gabriel Batistuta and Romario.

    Not a bad list.
