They are not silent about the latest events. The Norwegian team, which is about to make its debut in the European qualification for Qatar 2022, will make its voice of protest felt for the 6,500 immigrant workers who lost their lives during construction work in the country that will host the next World Cup.
Erling Haaland and his colleagues plan to make a gesture in favor of the workers who died since 2010. This would be carried out in the clash against Gibraltar in Marbella, Spain, in favor of the injustices that are being sent in the organization of the 2022 World Cup. “We are working on something concrete.
It is about putting pressure on FIFA to be even more direct, even firmer with the Qatari authorities, to impose stricter requirements, ”said Norwegian coach Staale Solbakken, in the run-up to the qualifying match. One of the footballers on the Scandinavian squad who spoke about the issue was Martin Odegaard. The Arsenal figure affirmed that it is a matter of concern within the squad and that everyone is committed to the cause.
"I have the impression that many (players) are interested in this, they care and want to do something to try to contribute in a good way", said the midfielder. The English media The Guardian pointed out a few weeks ago the countries of origin of the people who had a missing outcome in the Middle Eastern country: India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
