England defender Conor Coady has revealed that he and his teammates will discuss how they can use their platform to highlight Qatar’s record-breaking human rights record after graduating from the World Cup.
England needs one point from their upcoming San Marino match to book their place in next year’s tournament, which should be seen as the norm as the minnows have never won a single game in their competitive history.
On Sunday it was reported that Qatar was sending immigrant workers to help build the necessary infrastructure for the tournament with a five-month unpaid leave.
Qatar has been widely criticized for its handling of workers ahead of the World Cup, as the national teams of Norway, Germany, and the Dutch staged a series of high-profile protests.
Coady, who is part of England’s steering committee, said the Three Lions would discuss how they could express their concerns once their place in the tournament was finalized.
