World Flash: Blues luxury hotel, Belgian plane unable to fly to Qatar, Ghana jerseys forgotten

Every day during the World Cup, find the main information about the competition taking place in Qatar.

The Belgians managed to make a new Belgian joke. All proud of their new official plane, the national team players posed for a photo. It is called “Trident”, it is in the colors of the Red Devils, but also of the Red Fire, the women’s football team. Except that the selection will not go to the World with this plane. they flew from Zaventem airport to Kuwait, where a friendly match against Egypt will be played.

Why such a mic-mac? The Trident, the A320, doesn’t have a tank big enough to get the players there without stopping. So they took a bigger plane, the A330.

The plane will serve on conventional routes, and will make its first flight on Wednesday to Paris, and then to other European capitals. The previous plane, in the colors of the Red Devils, has completed more than 8,000 flights since 2026. It was withdrawn a few days ago.

What will the cyborg, Erling Haaland, do for 3 weeks? Do you hear from Manchester or do you play with Ashton United? The small club of the 7th English division offers him a month’s free time. “Ashton United can confirm that the club have submitted a 28-day loan request for Manchester City striker Erling Haaland,” a club statement read.

“It would make sense for both teams. City are not playing and we want to help them by keeping Erling fit, which makes more sense than playing golf for six weeks. We think he will be a perfect fit for us and will fit in very well with our team dynamic,” added manager Michael Clegg. We imagine Manchester City will politely decline…

Great Blues Hotel

The Blues won’t be vacationing in Qatar, but the resort they’ll be staying at looks like a great place to vacation. Al Messila Resort and Spa was selected by FFF. It is located in Doha, but not in the city center. You have to escape the city center and drive to Al-Rayyan district. There is also a luxury hotel.

On site, the Blues will have their own stewards and physiotherapists, a Blues chef and the hotel’s Italian chef Pino Lavarra. The players will be placed on the second floor, in individual rooms. With portraits of everyone on the door… Enough to get it into your skull that you have to stay humble…

On the ground floor there is a dining room and a restaurant, and outside there is a swimming pool with several islands of greenery, including a bar in the middle. Squash and tennis courts are also available. The hotel has been completely privatized by the Blues.

Did Ghana forget their shirts?

Will Ghana have to play in Decathlon jerseys? This Tuesday, Ghanaian journalist Marc Chouamo reveals that Ghana’s quartermaster made a big mistake: he simply forgot the country’s national team jerseys.

The selection is already in Qatar, which necessarily complicates things. The jerseys will be sent, but by local mail. The association therefore fears that these will not arrive in time for the first game on Thursday, November 24 against Portugal. However, officially, the Ghana Federation has not confirmed such an oversight. Malick Traoré, a Canal + journalist, denounces it as fake news.

If the information is confirmed, Ghana could therefore wear a neutral jersey or even evolve into a chasuble… Which would already paint a good picture for this World Cup.

There will be plenty of Ligue 1 players on the Qatar turf. The month-long World Cup kicks off on Sunday, and League 1 clubs will be eagerly awaiting the return of their players. PSG is the one sending the most players, with at least 11 selected, a complete squad. On the other hand, Ajaccio has it… 0.
