Reactions to the developing story.
Many people believe this is true and many people believe it’s a lie as well. We gathered some reactions from the quoted replies and here are they below.
@mbaalthani8 “People will believe anything about Qatar if it’s negative”
@thfcsxn “The fact Qatar was allowed to host this World Cup is an absolute disgrace”
@dunord “I didn’t hear you speak up when Russia bribed Saudi Arabia in game 1 of the 2018 World Cup. Where were you then? Or does it only matter when someone else is wearing the dirty shoes?”
@andreshidakgo88 “The Ecuadorian players may fail at times, give away goals for clumsiness, but I don’t see them selling themselves in a World Cup match where the whole world will see them, they have a lot of projection, they are talented and they are young, they will not risk their future for a few hundred thousand of dollars”
“Is that $7.4M per player or for all 8? I don’t see any Ecuadorian player losing a game for $1M. They can make much more than that by advancing in the different stages and even more by performing well individually. Hincapie is worth $40M now before the world cup… Why risk it?”
