"Even Schalke would win against Qatar" - network reactions to the World Cup opener between Qatar and Ecuador

The opening match of the 2022 World Cup between Qatar and Ecuador ended 0-2 from the perspective of the hosts. The Qatari national team, after all Asian champions in 2019, could at best prove that they were at the regional league level. After taking the lead early on and lacking resistance, Ecuador soon made themselves comfortable. Other protagonists: the VAR and Qatar's goalkeeper. Goals: 1-0 Valencia (16th) 2-0 (31st) This is how the net reacted to the opening game:

It wasn't even three minutes before the score was 1-0: after two big mistakes by Qatar's goalkeeper Saad Al-Sheeb, Ecuador's captain Enner Valencia finally headed in for the lead. After a long examination, the VAR, equipped with a new, semi-automatic offside technique, rightly withdrew the goal. Of course, the web couldn't take the mockery away:

But it didn't take long for Ecuador to take the lead against a completely overwhelmed Qataris. After 15 minutes, keeper Al-Sheeb brought down the experienced Valencia, who confidently took the due - and undisputed - penalty kick to give the Ecuadorians a deserved lead. Fifteen minutes later, Valencia were there and converted a cross from full-back Angelo Preciado with a wonderful header to make it 2-0. Valencia's third goal, the second to count and now Ecuador's fifth consecutive World Cup goal from the captain, who plays for Fenerbahce Istanbul. Qatar, on the other hand, came up with nothing, except to show that all investments in the national team appear to be completely in vain . Ecuador stopped their own game completely after the 2-0.

In terms of sport, very little happened in the remaining hour. It was much more likely that other topics would be taken up on the Internet. Especially keeper Al-Sheeb, who really showed a weak and flawed performance, got his fat off.

Otherwise, Qatar was amused at length, both in terms of sport and as the organizer of the tournament.
