Josh Cavallo, Australia’s first active male professional footballer to come out as gay, says a country’s stance on LGBTQ+ rights should be considered before awarding hosting rights for a major sporting event.

Cavallo has yet to receive a call-up to Australia’s senior squad but has previously said he would be “scared” to play at the World Cup in Qatar, where gay sex is a criminal offence.

“I vow to stand up for the LGBTQ athletes and the fans at the World Cup in Qatar, who can’t live openly, authentically. Qatar, FIFA, the world is watching,” Cavallo said on Wednesday. “Do you see us?”
