The situation around the World Cup in Qatar at a glance: the news ticker on Thursday, November 24th.
- The controversial World Cup 2022 in Qatar has been running since Sunday (November 20th).
- Germany blunders at the start and loses against Japan – Andreas Möller lacks the “biliousness”
Update from Thursday, November 24, 10:10 a.m: In the World Cup 2022 in Qatar there is a strict ban on alcohol in the stadiums. Only at the Fanfest do the beer stands open after 7 p.m., guests cannot get alcohol there before that either. A fan of World Cup participants Mexico did not want to put up with it and tried to circumvent the alcohol ban in the stadiums.
As videos on social media show, the Mexican had binoculars with him and prepared them in such a way that he wanted to smuggle alcohol into the stadium. The man was caught in the act by the security guards in front of the stadium and did not come into the stadium with the alcohol.
World Cup 2022: Möller lacks “biliousness” in the German team
first report: After the 2-1 draw against Japan at the start of the World Cup, world and European champion Andreas Möller criticized the German national team’s lack of toughness in duels. “Our team lacked biliousness. At the front when exploiting good chances, at the back in the decisive duel situations where we missed the “German virtues” that we used to praise! That’s not possible at all at a World Cup and certainly not at the first appearance,” wrote the 55-year-old in a column for the Kicker sports magazine. Players from other nations perceive lost duels as “a personal insult”. “In this respect we are too soft”, complained Möller.
For the second group game against Spain his hopes rested “on the undisputed great quality in the offensive area,” wrote Möller. “Fight, bite, don’t give up an inch against Spain, without these virtues we will have to say goodbye to the tournament.” (smr with dpa)
