As part of a continuing campaign to malign the image of Qatar, two former England internationals were offered money to take part in a conference and find fault with the Gulf nation hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
According to a report in the London-based The Times, Sol Campbell and Stan Collymore have been approached to take on paid roles as critics of the Qatar 2022 World Cup as part of a propaganda war that is being waged against the tournament’s host nation by rival Gulf states.
Campbell and Collymore have confirmed to The Times that they were offered fees to take part in a conference in London and were told by organisers that it would be critical of Qatar’s bidding for and hosting of the tournament.
