The 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP is running and Ecuador become the first team to get points after they defeated the hosts in a clinical win 2-0.
The next match scheduled for Monday would see the 1966 champions England competing against Asian powerhouse Iran at 6:30 PM IST at the Khalifa International Stadium.
Meanwhile, a video of the fans at Al Bayt Stadium screaming in sync has gone viral. The audio sounded- ”We want beer” chant echoed in demand to lift the beer ban. As soon as Qatar lost the initial football game in the tournament while playing against Ecuador, fans from the winning team sought organizers to allow the sale of beer and its consumption.
The beer ban imposed two days before the start of the tournament was the latest controversial snag for a global event already under scrutiny for Qatar’s human rights record and the emirates’ frantic push to ready the nation for the most compact World Cup in history.
