Despite the questioning of reports for alleged violations of human rights, there are artists who joined the inauguration ceremony of the Soccer World Cup Qatar 2022. Thus, the event will have the participation of one of the greatest singers in the world, Jungkook.
Known for his work in the BTS septet, Jungkook arrived in Qatar a few days ago to prepare his show, where he will sing “Dreamers”, a song included in the official soundtrack of the cup. Since 2013, he has been part of the K-Pop group, with which he has traveled the world with his message of self-love and respect.
Likewise, the show will feature the participation of the Qatari singer Fahad Al-Kubaisi, who has a 25-year career in the artistic world, since he was in high school.

Iran hoped that the soccer World Cup would be an opportunity to attract tourists given its proximity to Qatar and unite Iranians around the national flag, but the sporting event has been overshadowed by the protests that have shaken the country for more than two months. .
Soccer has been left in the shadow of the protests unleashed after the death on September 16 of Mahsa Amini, after being arrested three days earlier by the Morality Police for allegedly wearing the Islamic veil wrong.
The protests are carried out above all by young people and women shouting “woman, life, freedom”, who launch slogans against the Government and burn veils, one of the symbols of the Islamic Republic and something unthinkable not long ago.
At least 342 people have been killed in the demonstrations according to the Oslo-based NGO Iran Human Rights, while five people have been sentenced to death for their involvement in the demonstrations.
The usual football passion of the Iranians has disappeared to give way to apathy, despite the fact that Iran faces England and the United States, perhaps the biggest historical rivals of the Persian country. Little is said about the third participation of the so-called “Team Melli ” in a World Cup or if it will pass the group stage for the first time, beyond the state media. (EFE)
