To those of you with a bit of football knowledge here’s a far from complete list of some of the stars that have graced the faux-green pitches of Qatar.

Josep Guardiola, Gabriel Batistuta, Mario Basler, Frank de Boer, Ronald de Boer, Fernando Hierro, Stefan Effenberg, Romario, Frank Leboeuf, , Marcel Desailly, Christophe Dugarry, Claudio Caniggia, Tony Popović, Taribo West, Emile Mpenza, Sonny Anderson, Titi Camara, Eric Djemba Djemba, Hakan Yakin, Juninho Pernambucano.

In a brief (and probably highly inaccurate) calculation it seems to me that there are four World Cup winners there and 8-9 Champions League winners not to mention some of the greatest players ever to grace the game (Batistuta, de Boer, Romario). Quite the little selection that Qatar have assembled over the years.
