Brazil was stunned in penalties by Croatia while Portugal was sent packing by Morocco in the final quarterfinal. The two semifinals will see Argentina play Croatia and Morocco lock horns against France. Before the semifinal matches begin, here is a list of players who will be suspended for the matches: A player getting a yellow card in any match before the semifinal will see it being carried over to the next match. For example, a player getting a yellow card in the first group match will still have it under his name till the final quarterfinal game.

In case, he gets another yellow card in the quarterfinal match, or a match before that, he will be forced to sit out in the next game. Both the Argentina players, Acuna and Montiel were on yellow cards, going into the match against the Netherlands. Acuna fouled Netherlands defender Jurrien Timber in the 43rd minute, and the referee Antonio Mateu booked him as a result. For Montiel, the booking came three minutes after coming on from the bench in the 106th minute, when he reacted aggressively, following a nudge from Cody Gakpo.

Acuna’s first yellow card had come against Poland and Montiel’s first had come against Mexico, both group-stage games of Argentina. With their second yellow cards, both will be suspended for the semifinal. However, in the case of Walid Cheddira, the player was shown a second yellow, that is, a red card in the same match, against Portugal after two rough challenges, on Pepe and Joao Felix, forced the forward out in the second-half injury time.

In the first semifinal, only Alejandro Papu Gomez is doubtful against Croatia, with the winger recovering from an ankle injury. However, in the second match, Morocco is expected to miss out on its captain Romain Saiss, who was stretched out of the field, against Portugal with a hamstring injury. He is unlikely to get on his foot on time. The other players doubtful for Morocco are Abdelhamid Sabiri, and Hakim Ziyech, who are both recovering from a knock. Naif Aguerd is recovering from a muscle injury while Noussair Mazraoui has a hip injury to recuperate from.

However, all four players are likely to be ready to start before the game against France two days later. For France and Croatia, however, no injuries or suspensions are going into the match. Ousmane Dembele and Antoinne Griezmann got a yellow card in the quarterfinal game, but these cautions, they’re first in the tournament so far, will be taken in the semifinal.

Football is not the only game being played in Qatar

The Football World Cup is the primary football event in the world, held once every four years. For the first time, a Middle Eastern country hosts a tournament of this level. Qatar was chosen to host the tournament in 2010 after four sets of voting by the 22-member FIFA director committee, defeating the United States in the final round 14 votes to 8.
The Football World Cup’s typical calendar has been completely changed for the event to take place in Qatar. The tournament was scheduled for winter instead of summer for the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup, meaning football players had only a week of rest between the professional club season and the Football World Cup, and there will be no break after the competition before returning to the regular season again. For Gators, especially those who are into sports, the Qatar Football World Cup matters. Tighe Raymond, ’23, majoring in international studies and French, has played football since he was five years old and now considers it his passion. He was trying to watch as many games as possible this year despite a hectic studying schedule at the end of the semester.

Some of the professors put the game up on the screen, Raymond said animatedly. It’s crazy.
Qatar’s preparation policy for World Cup holding seemed a little premature for Raymond.
I think it wouldn’t be as impactful as it would be if it was during the summer, Raymond said. Senegal’s biggest hero, Sadio Mane got hurt two weeks before the start of the FIFA World Cup, and he was ruled out for the whole tournament. In addition to FIFA changing the tournament for Qatar, Qatar has made many changes in preparation for the tournament. There are many critics of the ensuing forced preparation for the tournament, including the involvement of cheap labour and deaths related to the infrastructure construction.

A few weeks before the start of the FIFA World Cup, Time magazine published a lengthy article about the fact that Qatar has built seven stadiums, a new airport, a subway system, new roads, and about 100 hotels in 12 years, all in preparation to support the influx of visitors that the Football World Cup would bring in 2022. Around the largest arena, which will host the opening match and the final, they even built a new city Lusail. All these expedient infrastructure projects were built by the hands of 2 million migrant workers, thousands of whom died from the record heat.

There are hundreds of thousands of people already working there in construction and the oil industry, service industry and there are appalling abuses that have been going on for decades, told Shanna Kirschner, associate professor, and chair of political science. Issues with the abuse of migrant labourers run throughout the entire Gulf. In addition to discrimination against migrant workers, other human rights violations are common in Qatar. Specifically, the rights of women in Qatar are systematically violated they are not treated as equal to men, although the country’s constitution states the opposite.

According to Human Rights Watch, women cannot be guardians of their children at any time. Women in Qatar must obtain permission from male guardians’ fathers, brothers, uncles, and husbands to exercise many basic rights. The permission to marry, travel, get higher education or drive a car also requires a man’s approval. Another example of the violation of rights is the attitude toward the LGBT+ community. Recently, the ambassador of the FIFA World Cup and ex-player of the Qatar national football team, Khalid Salman, supposed that homosexuality which is illegal by law in the conservative Muslim country is damage in the mind.

In response to this discrimination, the captains of seven European teams were set to wear OneLove armbands, rainbow armbands meant to spread a message of LGBT+ inclusivity to a country where their existence is repressed, according to The Guardian. FIFA responded, saying that spreading such a message would get them ejected from the game, banning them from being worn. The event has been fraught with protest in response, including Germany’s team covering their mouths for a photo to shed light on their forced silence and Wales waving rainbow flags at their training camp.

Iranian domestic politics have leaked into the tournament as well. After the Iranian national team did not sing their anthem in apparent solidarity with widespread unrest in their home country, their families were allegedly threatened with imprisonment and torture if the players did not behave well. According to CNN, the players were warned that their families would face violence and torture if they joined any political protest against the regime in Tehran or did not sing the national anthem. Kirschner mentioned that the Mundial the unofficial name of the World Cup after the 1982 Football World Cup in Spain is also an event that gets a lot of attention.

For participants it is a moment to speak up about something that matters, Kirschner said. It took a lot of courage for those athletes to do that since the Iranian government threatened the families of the Iranian with imprisonment and torture. There’s politics everywhere. I do think that this World Cup has highlighted some issues that are more about FIFA than Qatar specifically. Raymond agreed with Kirschner, saying that football should be involved with politics regarding racism, sexism, and other challenging topics. He also finds it hard for himself to separate sports and politics.

“When I’m watching some games, I can’t help but think what’s going on behind the scenes,” Raymond stated.

Ray Colabawalla, 25, was born in Qatar and lived there for the first nine years of his life. He is critical of all media coverage because he believes there are some political things that I will not be able to oversee. He explained that people should also consider other facts while judging the situation since inequality exists and is often intentionally maintained everywhere.

I don’t think the U.S. is a place to criticize Qatar about the migrant workers, Colabawalla said. A lot of those migrant workers were Indian. If anybody should be mad, it should be me! He remembers watching the World Cup with his brothers as a child and does not betray the tradition. Despite all issues around the Qatar Football World Cup, he thinks fans are happy watching games this year. According to CNN, there have been fewer incidents of football hooliganism and fewer conflicts between fans due to the ban on drinking in public places in Qatar.

Ultimately, there are many angles to view the FIFA World Cup positively and negatively. Kirshner mentioned the sort of hypocrisy when people pay attention to certain countries. It’s not that we shouldn’t be making a lot of noise about human rights violations in Qatar, but then we also need to do it with other states’ violations, Kirschner said. The FIFA World Cup needs to be truly a Football World Cup.
