Mobilizing more than 20,000 volunteers from many countries in the region, the World Cup host still faces many “wretched crying and laughing” situations. This is the sharing of many volunteers with Vn88 mobile
Sorry I do not know. I’ve only been working here for a month” is the catchphrase of volunteers, security guards at stadiums and press centers at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in recent days. The organization of the host of the largest football festival on the planet.
Specifically, at the Vn88cx press center, many volunteers acted like “strangers” to reporters’ questions when they came here. They do not know the location of each location such as where to park, where to pick up technology vehicles. The answer reporters often hear is always “Sorry, I don’t know. I’ve only been here for a month.” That is just one of the examples showing the lack of thoughtfulness in the organization of the 2022 World Cup by the host.
On the opening day of the 2022 World Cup on November 20, the bus carrying reporters to Al Bayt stadium, where the match between Qatar and Ecuador in Group A was held, “suddenly got lost” and had to run “heart” round” to find a stop even if it’s only a few kilometers away from the destination. An argument broke out between the driver and the traffic coordinator near the yard. Finally, a host reporter had to say: “We are international media. Call your boss.”
Many journalists expressed displeasure with this. They shook their heads in disgust. Someone even exclaimed “How can the host country be so unprofessional”.
Entering the yard, when reporters wanted to find the fanzone, they went to the security staff to ask. Surprisingly, the answer I received was “I don’t know where that place is”.
Vn88 news said that the host country has made great efforts to do well the task of hosting the World Cup. Among them, traffic is the top priority. On major roads, many volunteers appear to help coordinate traffic. However, they sometimes do not know the information well, leading to many problems appearing, affecting the operation process of the media.
For example, reporters will have a hard time finding the training ground of the football teams. At the 2022 World Cup, the Argentina team chose Qatar University as a place to forge troops. With just a few small steps, reporters can choose their own easy means of transportation to participate in their work. However, the journey to get to the desired training ground sometimes falls into the situation of “crying and laughing”. That’s because it took them longer to travel than expected because some roads leading to Argentina’s training ground had no specific instructions, causing drivers to “get lost” at times.
According to Vn88’s research, the shortcoming in the organization of the World Cup host comes from the fact that the volunteers have too little time to get used to everything. Some people only come to Qatar to work for a month, making the preparation not perfect.
The 2022 World Cup has just started and Qatar has lost points soon. Obviously, it’s not always easy with lots of volunteers. The host country of the World Cup certainly has many problems to solve in the coming days.
We just want to congratulate the opponent. They deserve to win. Qatar still has a lot to improve. We did not overcome the psychological pressure and got off to a bad start,” Vn88.cx quoted Felix Sanchez as saying.
As the host of the World Cup, Qatar had a disappointing opening when they lost completely to Ecuador. The Asian representative could not hold the ball, not even a single shot on target during 90 minutes. On the other side of the front line, Enner Valencia sowed grief for the home fans with a double goal in the first half.
At the first time entering the world-class tournament, coach Sanchez’s army could not avoid being matched. They failed in many simple situations that made the fans lose their patience.
Answering to Vn88 mobile about the fans leaving before the match was over, the Spaniard said: “We feel supported and hope this will still happen in the next match. I know defeat is hard to accept. But the Qatar team will try to learn from today. We are confident to make the fans prouder in the next matches
