French president, Emmanuel Macron, says the Qatar, FIFA World Cup, scheduled to kick- off on Sunday, should not be a forum for raising political concerns.
Macron, who agreed that political issues must be addressed when hosting was decided, said
Fifa had charged particpating nations to focus on the game of football during the tournament than to delve into non- football discussion.
Twelve years ago, Fifa’s Executive Committee, voted fourteen to eight, for Qatar to host the tournament ahead of the United States of America, USA.
Meanwhile, Qatari royal family, is pressuring FIFA, for a complete ban on selling alcohol, at all the stadia to host World Cup matches.
