Fifa is facing calls to rerun the bidding competition for the 2022 World Cup after allegations that a former top Qatari football official paid $5m (£2.98m) to win support for the nation's campaign to host the event. Labour said Qatar should lose the 2022 World Cup and urged those involved to resign if the Fifa corruption allegations detailed in the Sunday Times were true. Clive Efford, the shadow sport minister, said the new revelations "called the governance of football into question".
The cartoon by Adams from the Daily Telegraph shows a football match between Qatar and the Rest of the World. The Rest of the World players (i.e., top football officials) and the 'Fifa' referee allow the Qatar player to score a goal (i.e., win the contest to host the 2022 World Cup) unopposed. The ROTW players' pockets are stuffed with banknotes, representing the bribes they have received to support the Qatari bid.
See if you can spot the following football-related items in the cartoon: whistle, shorts, penalty area, touchline, corner flag, goal line, pitch, net, goalmouth, crossbar, byline, football, goal area, penalty arc, goalposts.
The penalty spot seems to have disappeared!
