Why is the 2022 World Cup controversy?
Ever since it won the right to host the 2022 World Cup, Qatar has been a controversial choice. The Persian Gulf country’s scorching climate made it impossible to hold the competition during the usual summer slot, so it was switched to November and December — just when national leagues are in full swing.
Why is it called the group of death?
The nickname originated when a group of Mexican journalists called Group 3 of the 1970 World Cup the grupo de la muerte (literally, group of death) when the group was made up of reigning champions England, eventual winners Brazil, runners up of the 1962 World Cup Czechoslovakia and Romania.
