- Southgate’s squad given briefing on Gulf state
- ‘It’s horrendous when you look at some issues’
Jordan Henderson has described Qatar’s record of human rights abuses as “shocking, disappointing and horrendous” after he and his fellow England players received a detailed briefing on the situation in the Gulf state.
It seems certain that Gareth Southgate’s squad will issue a collective message challenging the stance taken by this year’s World Cup host country towards the rights of women, the LGBTQ+ community and the migrant workers responsible for building the stadiums on show at Qatar 2022 among much other infrastructure.
