Tottenham Hotspur and England star Eric Dier reacts to alcohol ban at 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

Tottenham Hotspur and England centre-back Eric Dier has urged fans to get on with the alcohol ban in the stadiums in Qatar during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Earlier, as per the BBC, alcohol was allowed to be purchased in select parts of the stadium. However, that was changed two days prior to the start of the tournament, and now, fans won’t be able to purchase it inside the stadium.

Alcohol can still be purchased inside the corporate areas in the stadium. The sale of alcohol is heavily controlled in Islamic countries. Speaking at a press conference, Dier said:

“I’d like to think you can enjoy yourself with or without alcohol. Players and fans feed off each other and we need to be the ones to initiate that with good football. The football is the fundamental thing in creating that environment.”

That’s as safe and diplomatic as an answer can get, but Dier is right. The World Cup is about football and it’s no secret that alcohol consumption can and has led to some ugly scenes in and outside the stadium during games.

Moreover, it’s not bad to honour the practices that are being followed in a certain part of the world. It’s more about the football that is being played on the pitch that matters.

The high of seeing your nation score is perhaps as good as it gets, and Dier would hope that England can provide their fans with as many such dopamine rushes as possible. He will hope to start in manager Gareth Southgate’s team when England take on Iran on Monday.

Encounters against the USMNT and Wales follow. Harry Kane is a sure-shot inclusion in England’s starting XI and would be their main man up front when it comes to scoring and perhaps even creating chances.
