The World Cup in Qatar opened last Saturday, November 19, and on Tuesday evening, Didier Deschamps’ men played their very first pool match, against Australia. A meeting which ended in a 4-1 for the Blues, with in particular two goals from Olivier Giroud, one from Adrien Rabiot, and one from Kylian Mbappé. In front of the popular fervor which resists the boycott of the competition, the politicians also did not want to miss this appointment. And even the most recalcitrant.
This is how on November 22, Marine Le Pen, the former president of the National Rally, tweeted a message of encouragement. The daughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen, who prefers rugby, estimated: “Our Blues enter the fray this evening against Australia in the World Cup. Let’s wish them to go to the end of this competition and to bring back a third title!”

Something to surprise more than one, since in 2016, when the Euro competition was played in France, the far-right politician did not have the same tone. She had estimated on her blog, Notebook of Hopes: “June 10 will start Euro 2016 in France. It’s no secret that I don’t have a particular attraction for football. More specifically for professional football, its indecent display of money, its scandals at repetition, its endemic corruption”. A change of mood which earned him some criticism on the Web, and in particular “holy half-turn!“.
Suspicions of corruption
Currently, the World Cup in Qatar is shunned for several reasons: the organizers are blamed for the humanitarian disaster that took place during the construction of the facilities, the violations of human rights and ecology. More generally, since 2010, suspicions of corruption have multiplied around the awarding of the FIFA World Cup to Qatar.
Our Blues enter the fray tonight against Australia in the World Cup. We wish them to go to the end of this competition and to bring back a third title!
