    What about countries that flout international norms and then fail to qualify for the World Cup? Iran being the obvious example for this year. And who decides who gets the “group of death,” as opposed to the “group of serious bodily harm” or “group of property taking without just compensation?”

    While I approve of the World Cup sanctions plan in the abstract, assigning states that are in violation of international law to Groups of Death could in practice inadvertently result in soccer player human rights violations

    At any rate, I certainly don’t envy the North Korean squad.
