“Shut up and sit in your seat”: A fan from Ecuador teased the Qataris and that’s how it ended

Ecuador, the South American side faced Qatar, the host nation yesterday (Sunday) in the opening match of the World Cup soccer competition, which ended with a score of 2-0 to Ecuador. After one goal of Ener Valencia, a striker in Fenerbahçe, was disallowed by the referees, he scored two more goals and brought victory to his team.

One of the fans of the South American team, who came all the way to Qatar to watch the opening game, managed to annoy some Qatari fans – despite repeated warnings from foreign ministries around the world. View the documentation:

The fan, who especially enjoyed his team’s scoring, was caught on camera taunting the local fans sitting in the stands. The man can be seen making a “money” gesture with his hand while asking aloud, repeatedly: “How much?” to those around him. However, his antics seemed to upset some of the Qatari citizens, as seconds later a local man sitting two rows behind the fan was recorded responding to him by shouting “Shut up! Shut up and sit down!”, while bystanders can be heard in the background asking the two to calm down.

Earlier yesterday, before the opening whistle, many fans flocked to social media to claim that the victory had been “sold” to the host nation, but three minutes before the end of the game, Ecuador seemed to take the lead until they finally won.
