Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – An English football fan has documented a wild night he spent foraging for beer at the Qatar 2022 World Cup. His adventures took him and his friends to the home of a sheik’s son.
Reported FOX Sports, Alex Sul posted the crazy night on Snapchat, where he, his father and friend Johnno spent the night partying at the Qatari man’s luxurious home, driving his luxury vehicle and meeting his exotic pets. One clip even shows Sul cuddling with a four-year-old lion.
For TalkSportthe Everton supporter says it all started when he befriended two men named Nawaf and Abdul-Aziz.
“We were looking for beers and they said, ‘We can arrange,’ so we jumped into the back of his Toyota Land Cruiser, ending up in a big mansion,” Sul said, quoted Sunday (11/27/2022).
“We were in the back and he showed us his monkey, exotic bird — it was crazy,” she continued.
A glimpse of Sul’s shared luxury property shows the landlord’s spacious gaming room, complete with Play Station 5. A man wearing traditional Qatari dress is seen talking to his father and friends.
In another video, Sul is heard saying, “Die,” while playing with a pet lion.
The final clip also shows a group of five driving down the highway and blaring music. Qatari men have also been seen filming British men on their phones.

In a post shared on Reddit, users really enjoyed the great night out.
“If they don’t film it, no one will believe it,” one person joked.
“Same for the Qatari guy. No one will believe a bunch of Brits just randomly broke into his house lol,” said another user.
“The Hangover: Qatar version!” wrote another user.
In a controversial move that has rocked the World Cup, the Qatari government has made a last-minute decision to ban the sale of alcohol in its stadiums.
This is despite previous concessions allowing spectators to purchase alcohol in stadiums and fan zones. Now, the sale of alcohol can only take place in the corporate area, which has a hefty entry fee.
The move also threatens FIFA’s $112m sponsorship deal with Budweiser, the competition’s official beer supplier.
“New day, new tweets. Winning country gets buds. Who gets it?” Budweiser tweeted.
