There have been a bunch of English fans dressed as crusaders partying in Qatar for the World Cup and it is making some noise.
The outfits are common at English matches, but apparently not very common in Muslim countries, I wonder why that is?
Visitors have been asked to change their outfits as respect for the modest country, mainly in reference to Rainbow LGQBTQ+ flags, but I guess with with Christian crusaders too.
For those of you not familiar with world history, the Crusaders fought a religious wars for about 200 years back in the year 1100, which means they went after Islamic cities/countries and countries.
Clearly, the partying Englishmen out for a good time aren't referencing that or being political, it's just their football fan tradition, but ancestral trauma likely runs deep!
Here are some Crusaders being questioned!
