Qatar, the host of the 2022 World Cup, played a warm-up match on Tuesday and lost 3-0 to Croatia U23s. The team's ability and state are worrying.

The Qatar World Cup is still 2 months away. The strength of the host Qatar attracts attention. However, they conceded 3 goals against Croatia U23 on Tuesday, making people less optimistic about their World Cup group stage.

It is reported that this Croatian team is all composed of young domestic players, and there is not a single player who has studied abroad, but even so, they beat Qatar.

Qatar will play Canada on Friday and Chile next Tuesday, while their warm-up match against Bolivia has been canceled.

On November 20th, Qatar will face Ecuador in the opening match of the World Cup, and then will play against Senegal and the Netherlands. The opponents in the group are not weak, and Qatar may need a miracle to qualify.
