The 2022 men’s World Cup officially kicked off with Sunday’s match between Ecuador and Qatar. While Ecuador beat the host country, 2-0, fans in the stadium had something to say about the available refreshments at Al Bayt Stadium—or lack thereof.

For Ecuador fans looking to make their presence felt at Sunday’s game—but without benefit of adult beverages—the choice of chant was clear and to the point:
“We want beer!”
