World Cup Politics

That awkward moment when Boris Johnson is reminded Russia (USSR) boycotted Hitler's Olympics, but Great Britain didn't. And the England football team were ordered by the then Tory government to give the Nazi salute in Germany in 1938.



Russia won't be as exagerrated ... but how might the political politics play out? Thoughts?

I mean, with recent relations between the countries, might there be an explosion (OK, metaphorical) and England walks out altogether, or even doesn't go at the end?!

One can but hope, they should invite teams such as Holland, Italy, Wales and others to an otrganised tournament in the UK, possibly USA and others that didn’t qualify, and if others withdraw then they too could be invited.
