I agree with you in principle, but Qatar really is one of the most unsuitable places on earth to hold this competition.

Bowlie I was surprised by “tens of thousands”, so looked it up. I’d say you are on the high side by any measure, but it’s still a ridiculous number of immigrant workers who have died in Qatar since the World Cup was awarded (note the wording which distinguishes between a direct result of the World Cup).

It's a shame!

then it's anybody's game. I think Brazil goes all the way

France continues to be the most talented disorganized team
Agree apart from I would have Poland over Mexico and Switzerland over Serbia.

I was undecided to be honest. Also undecided if Senegal or Qatar. Pretty sure Qatar will get some help

So no surprises at all? How boring. Like the Doha Christmas market.
Well to be honest the world cup should only have 4 groups of 4
