Qatar Becomes First Team to Get Eliminated from FIFA World Cup 2022

World Cup host Qatar was eliminated on Friday, just six days and two matches into the tournament.

Qatar had previously made unwanted history as the first host to lose the opening game of the tournament.

The tiny Gulf nation spent around $220 billion on the first World Cup in the Middle East, according to estimates, but has found that great wealth can’t buy a world-class soccer team.

Qatar can’t advance to the knockout round after losing to Ecuador in the opener and to Senegal on Friday.

Qatar had never qualified for the game’s biggest tournament before winning the right to host it 12 years ago.
