Sport: The World Cup in Qatar could destroy football. Why now is the time for a countermovement

Jody Wilson and her son Ben huddle in the bean bags as if to escape the Doha heat. No umbrella provides shade, but going back to the unit at lunchtime is not an option. The two, from Chester in England, live in the Fan Village Rawdat Al Jahhaniya, one of those sad container villages that the Qataris let roll in the void around Doha. Jody bought a thermometer in the Mall of Qatar, which rises out of the dust like a mirage a few freeways away. 46 degrees shows that in the container, she says.
