Katie McCabe feels the staging of the men's World Cup in Qatar this year is "not a good look for football".

The tournament begins on the 20th November, with the host nation facing Ecuador.

The Republic of Ireland captain admits she'll be busy playing club football but has no interest in watching the tournament.

Homosexuality is illegal in Qatar.

McCabe - who has come out publicly - hopes that the World Cup passes off without incident:

A former Qatar international has stated homosexuality was "damage in the mind".

The comments were made by during an interview, Khalid Salman - an ambassador for this year's World Cup.

Salman added "they have to accept our rules here."

The interview was stopped shortly after, by an official.

To date World Cup organisers, have declined to comment.

On Friday it was revealed FIFA had written to all 32 nations taking part in the tournament, urging them not to get involved in any political controversies - and just focus on football.
