Football is the planet’s favourite game. But Fifa, international football’s global super-body, has become an outright embarrassment to the sport. The catalyst for Fifa’s unprecedented current discredit was the extraordinary award of the 2022 World Cup, the single biggest decision the body can take, to Qatar, a country that would struggle to beat the Falkland Islands or the Vatican City in a football match, but which is well-endowed with money and the five-star hotels in which Fifa executives and their hangers-on like to spend as much of their lives as possible at other people’s expense.
