FIFA is a shambles!

Qatar 2022 ‘whistleblower’ in corruption U-turn

It would seem that all is well within FIFA! We can all forget now how the corruption allegations dominated the headlines recently, with masses of evidence quoted from many reliable sources that things ‘haven’t been quite right’ for a while now.
