The Qatar World Cup has provoked strong and sometimes conflicting, reactions in many people.
In this series of videos, written by James Montague and illustrated by Alice Devine, Tifo explains why the World Cup in the Gulf State is so controversial.
How did Qatar get into a position to be able to host a World Cup? What is the history of Qatar? Why did the country want this tournament?
This episode begins in 1990 with three seemingly unconnected events: The publication of the Taylor Report, the independence of Lithuania, and the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq.
