Fifa urged to strip Qatar of 2022 World Cup after Isis terror claims

"Tickets should be easy to get, right" - Twitter users react to Qatar row after countries cut ties, speculating about the 2022 World Cup

Twitter users are pondering the fate of the World Cup 2022 as a diplomatic row escalates

Monday, June 5, 2017

Football fans around the world have been urging Fifa to strip Qatar of the 2022 World Cup following the terrorism allegations which emerged this morning.

Football's governing body generated huge controversy by awarding the tournament to the tiny Gulf country in 2010, and the decision played a role in the subsequent corruption probe which has led the arrest and disgrace of several top Fifa officials.

Now the issue is once again front-and-centre of the world's media, after five countries suspended diplomatic ties with Doha over allegations it has backed militant groups like Al-Qaeda and Isis. 

While the country has blasted these allegations, Twitter users have immediately begun to speculate if it will continue as planned or be removed by Fifa in the wake of the accusations.
