With his face painted in Brazil colours, a young Qatari named Mohammed was greeting every foreigner on the metro train.

Mohammed was only 14 in 2010 when Qatar famously won the bid to host the first-ever World Cup in the middle-east region.

Now 12 years later, the country has turned his dream into a glorious reality.

Mohammed says he is incredibly happy and proud of his country.

“Yes, I wear the Brazil colours for their matches. But if you ask me, I support every team that is playing in the World Cup here in Qatar,” Mohammed told this reporter.

“Yes, I am very happy that the World Cup dream has come true. I wish that our country organises the World Cup every year.”

Mohammed is also proud of the way the Arab teams have performed in the World Cup.

“Yes, I am very happy for the Arab teams,” he said.

“In fact, I was at the stadium when Saudi Arabia beat Argentina. It was an amazing match.”
