Fans all saying the same thing after grim World Cup food is revealed as cheap pastry during awful stadium test event
WITH the World Cup just TWO months away, fans heading to Qatar are eagerly anticipating what food they will be able to tuck into inside the grounds.
And now one of the stomach-turning options on the menu has been revealed.
But fans have been left far from impressed by a picture posted to Twitter by account @FootyScran.
One delicacy reportedly available to buy is a bog-standard pain au chocolate in plastic packaging.
It’s claimed the measly pastry will set supporters back £3.50.
And fans have been left fuming by the price of the grim looking looking snack.
One joked on social media: “Get 5 of those out co op for a quid.”
Another said: “£3.50 for a packeted pan au chocolat? Get tf outta here! That’s absolute robbery, an actual freshly made one would be worth that.”
A third quipped: “£3.50 for a pain au chocolat, you are taking the p*** mate.”
The dodgy looking World Cup food was revealed during a disastrous test event at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, which is set to host the final on December 18.
The stadium welcomed 78,000 fans last Friday to watch the Lusail Super Cup between Saudi side Al Hilal and Egyptian outfit Zamalek.
But the test event is believed to have been a shambles all round.
ESPN claim the stadium had run out of water by half-time, with supporters unable to access any inside or outside the ground.
It was also claimed that fans stuck in huge queues were begging to be let through after getting held up on their way out of the ground.
But Three Lions supporters will be glad to know alcohol WILL be served in select areas within stadiums and fan zones throughout the course of the tournament.
England kick off their World Cup campaign on November 21 – the opening day of the tournament.
