A German paper calls for Russia to be stripped of the 2018 World Cup because of the war with Ukraine

The front page of Berlins Grösste Zeitung on Monday has called for Russia to be stripped of 2018 World Cup.

The paper is looking for Russia to be punished after Malaysia Airlines MH17 was shot out the sky by a surface to air missile last week over Ukraine.

Whether other news organisations will follow the trend remains to be seen, however the front page serves as a reminder to just how illustrious and significant it is to have football’s grandest competition hosted in your country.
