Sound of Football Podcast 450 - Playing under protest

In Europe this international break has seen the start of qualification for the World Cup in Qatar, late next year. It has also seen a start to on-field protests against the host nation.

Players from Norway, Netherlands and Germany have all made their feelings clear by wearing t-shirts drawing attention to the abuse of human rights of migrant workers and citizens in the Gulf state. While these actions have done much to draw attention, will we see protests outside of affluent, liberal countries of northern Europe?

With all the negative headlines that have and will be genrated between now and the end of the tournament, how will Qatar 2022 shape the choice of World Cup hosts in years to come?
