Samuel Eto’o, a legend of the beautiful game, has urged football fans who want to come to Qatar to watch the World Cup and cheer on their teams to ignore the rumors of a terrorist attack.
He pointed out that Qatar has been unfairly criticized for its repressive policies toward spectators.
Samuel Eto’o has debunked widespread claims that tourists are prohibited from engaging in certain activities, including alcohol use.
It’s a common misconception that foreigners must be married to enter Qatar, but that’s not the case. In an interview broadcast on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” show on Friday morning, he added, “They can also come to visit Qatar, and some of them who like to consume a little bit of alcohol can do so, and of course, they need to respect the culture of the country.”
By boldly declaring, “we are not that utterly different culturewise,” the African footballing superpower set the record straight for football fans regarding the country of Qatar. My brothers may come to go to the stunning landscape and experience a culture that is close to Africa’s compared to the rest of the globe. They’re decent people. The folks here are really friendly, and they are eager to teach us about their heritage.
