    Qatar and Iran are allies against Saudi Arabia, so probably not likely :)

    Yeah, so Saudi Arabia will just have one of it's many terrorist proxies plant some limpet mines around the stadia then. ;)

    Surely for those 1,400+ immigrant workers who have died building the damn things we should continue with their use as intended and trial/punish both of the parties involved separately.

    Hope they change the location and time of year it's going to be then now. Having it in Qatar is stupid.

    It will go ahead in Qatar and no one will boycott it because the western nations are weak and the rest understand that's how the world works

    Those that are found guilty of the corruption charges should be made to realise those deaths are on their hands. As should every single attendee.

    There seems to be a lot of corruption on all sides. I think they got chosen for political reasons, and now it's being taken away for political reasons.
