BARRIO – Problems continue to build up in Qatar. Reports are surfacing about host country Qatar bribing its opponents.
According to Amjad Taha, the regional director of the British Middle East Center for Studies and Research with over 430,000 followers on Twitter, Qatar has bribed opposing players. According to Taha and other insiders, Qatar bribed eight Ecuadorian players $7.4 million to lose the opening game of the tournament.
Taha also claims that the bribe involves Qatar winning the match 1-0 with the lone goal coming in the second half.
FIFA is super concerned about match-fixing. It’s expected that over $100 billion in bets will be made throughout the tournament.
