Seven worst persecutor countries in World Cup

As teams from 32 countries compete for the World Cup in Russia, the Open Doors ministry have pointed out that seven of those countries are on its 2018 World Watch List of where it’s most difficult to be a Christian.
Of the 50 countries where Christians are not free to live out their faith without the threat of persecution, according to the 2018 World Watch List, Iran is ranked number 10, Saudi Arabia at number 12, Nigeria at number 14, Egypt at number 17, Tunisia at number 30, Mexico at number 39, and Colombia at number 49.
While the world is watching the most-watched sporting event in which these seven countries are playing football matches, only few may realise that these nations represent millions who are being persecuted due to their faith.
