Fans celebrated Argentina’s win against Mexico in Lusail’s Arab night alternative fan zone on Saturday.
Fans were seen enjoying shishas seating in bean bag chairs as Lionel Messi and Argentina went past Mexico (2-0).
“We went to the FIFA Fan Fest and it was so full and packed, that it took an hour and a half to walk in, so much walking. Everyone was sitting on the floor, you can not walk or move. So we went by metro and Uber here and we realised there is a small fan fest here, very local and cultural,” a fan explained.
‘Arabian Nights’ is one of the culture and entertainment options available during the World Cup, with Qatar reportedly expecting over 1.2 million visitors.
