Qatar 2022 invites eight workers to the opening match of Russia 2018
Generation Amazing, Qatar’s social programme to improve conditions in neighbouring countries as well as helping immigrants who have come to Qatar, has helped realise the dreams of some of the workers who are turning the World Cup 2022 into reality. Eight of them were invited to Russia to watch this edition of the tournament, which precedes Qatar 2022, and yesterday they attended the opening match between Russia and Saudi Arabia. “You see an excitement about the football that sometimes those of us who have dedicated our lives to the game don’t perceive. Just seeing their faces filled with happiness is enough”, said Xavi, ambassador for Generation Amazing.
