One Qatar fan was seen becoming angry and he shouted: “Shut up and sit there.” However, nothing serious happened as both of them were seen in a lighter mood after some time.

Later another video went viral where the Qatar fan was seen introducing and greeting the Ecuador fan. The Qatar fan said: “This is Peter. He is from Ecuador. He is here to watch the match today. In the end bro, we are here to watch the beautiful game.” Then, the Ecuador fan also said: “Yes. Passion sometimes makes people obsessed. But, we come together here for sports. Sports need people together. So, we are very friendly to each other. I wish Qatar all the best and It’s been a beautiful World Cup so far. You guys are so so friendly. I love you.” 

Speaking of the match, Ecuador skipper Enner Valencia scored a brace and won the game for his country against Qatar. However, with that loss, Qatar became the first host nation to lose the opening game in the history of the FIFA World Cup.
