The wait for the 2022 World Cup is almost over with the draw for the tournament, set to take place before the tournament in Qatar later this year.

England have already secured their place in the tournament, which will be played in November and December instead of their usual summer tournament to escape the intense Qatar heat.

Awarding the World Cup to Qatar 12 years ago was controversial, and human rights organizations including Amnesty International have raised concerns about the country’s treatment of migrant workers.

Sides such as Denmark and Germany have flagged human rights abuses after qualifying for the tournament and there are still a few more places up for grabs before the conclusion of this week’s World Cup qualifiers, while some play-offs will only take place after the draw.
