The host team was accused of organizing a match-fixing match in the opening match of the tournament.

The World Cup has not yet started, but it is already beginning to grow in scandals. This time, the organizers were accused of organizing match-fixing.

The regional head of the British Center for Middle East Studies, Amjad Taha, said that the opening match of the World Cup could get an unfair result.

“Qatar bribed 8 Ecuadorian players with $7.4 million for a 1-0 loss in the first leg of the World Cup (1-0, goal in the 2nd half). Five insiders from Qatar and Ecuador confirmed this. We hope that this is a lie. We hope that the publication of this truth will affect the situation. The world must face the corruption in FIFA,” Taha wrote.

It will be remembered that the opening match of the 2022 World Cup between the national teams of Qatar and Ecuador will be held on November 20, and will start at 18:00 Kyiv time.

Earlier, at the World Cup, there was a scandal with journalists from Denmark, who were prevented from working on the live broadcast.
