Qatar World Cup organizers dispute Denmark kit manufacturer’s claims of human rights violations in Qatar.
The 2022 World Cup tournament in Qatar has faced criticism over the tournament’s timing and funding, which Qatar and its ruling emir and father of the nation, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, have blamed on the country’s neighbours and the European Union (EU).
