It didn’t take long for Qatar’s ban on beer sales at all World Cup venues to quickly backfire on the host nation.
During the host nation’s opening match against Ecuador, fans of the visiting country could be heard chanting “queremos cerveza” after taking a 2-0 lead (which would end up being the final score). That phrase translates to “we want beer,” adding insult to the humiliating showing by the Qatari’s in the opening match of the tournament.

Both teams will be back on the pitch later this week, playing their second match on Friday. Qatar will face Senegal and Ecuador will take on the Netherlands, though I doubt alcohol will be for sale at either tilt.
The United States play their first World Cup match since 2014 at 2 p.m., taking on Gareth Bale and Wales, who are in their first World Cup in over half a century.
