The International Football Federation (FIFA) has responded to the scandal surrounding the admission of an unauthorized person, a Turkish chef nicknamed Salt Bae, to the 2022 World Cup award cup in Qatar, and has launched an internal investigation.

The purpose of the investigation was to clarify the question of how Turkish chef Nusret Gokce got on the field after the end of the World Cup final match between the national teams of Argentina and France and got access to the cup. Many people noticed his behavior.

“After the victorious match with the French, he molested the players, asked for their autographs, and even managed to take a picture with the trophy,” the Baza telegram channel notes.

According to FIFA regulations, outsiders have no right to gain access to the field and to the victory cup: only the winners of the tournament, FIFA officials and heads of state can touch the trophy.

Meanwhile, the Turkish chef, despite the restrictions, managed not only to touch the cup, but also to get vivid photos in his personal archive, including with the legend of the tournament - the captain of the Argentine national team Lionel Messi .

Experts believe that his friendly ties with FIFA President Gianni Infantino could probably help the chef to enter the field.

It should be noted that on the eve of the World Cup final, the chef was far from the only person who dreamed of getting on the field. Before the start of the France-Argentina match, security forces in Qatar detained activists from the Pussy Riot group who intended to run onto the field and hold a rally against a military special operation on the territory of Ukraine . The vigilant security of the stadium detained the Russians, after which they were arrested. They were subsequently released.

Recall that during the finals of the 2018 World Cup in Moscow, the activists of this group, dressed in police costumes, managed to get onto the field and get into the lenses of all television companies in the world. Subsequently, the actionists were sentenced to 15 days of arrest. under part 3 of article 20.31 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (gross violation of the rules of conduct for spectators during official sports competitions) and a ban on attending sports competitions for three years.
