The Qatar World Cup opened on Nov. 20th, 2022. The Chinese men’s soccer team failed to enter the Game. Yet, the Chinese government and its central media outlets took the opportunity, that is a globally watched sporting event, to praise the “omnipresence of Chinese elements in the World Cup”, hoping to cultivate and inspire patriotism or love for the party. But this propaganda campaign has provoked a lot of public resentment.
Speaking of corruption, a news story recently broke out. On November 12th, 2022, it was revealed that Li Tie, the former head coach of the Chinese men’s soccer team, has been “missing” to this day.

Moreover, Li is not the only person taken away as many big names in the soccer industry are also said to have been investigated at the same time.
