    To be fair Qatar won the Asian Championship 2019...so they should be at least semi competitive.

    But that BIG Money buys Sports is nothing new. And yes germany had a problem too with buying the 2006 championship, a reason for shame
    I repeat a quote I made in another forum.
    The answer to 99 questions out of 100 is money

    It is possible that Russia will take part, because the potential opponents won't play them 😲

    So the effect would be contrary to the intention...

    @Ponderable thankfully they have now been booted, i read a call earlier for Scotland to allow Ukraine to advance, can't see that happening, though not sure what will happen as a large number of the Ukrainan team are still in Ukraine

    Thank ful we can be. It is difficult to find a good solution for the Ukrainian team. I agree.

    Well, it's their own fault, after all. They should never have let themselves get into that spot after all, coming second to Switzerland.

    Qatar plays in the first round agains the Netherlands, Senegal and Ecuador.

    I would bet that they won't make it into the k.o. Phase.

    Against two teams of Lions? Not a chance. I'm not holding out much hope for Ecuador, either.
