THIS is the moment a World Cup fan appears to have a novel way to sneak alcohol into a Qatar stadium before a match.
Another man wearing a black and red baseball cap can be seen talking to the security guard as he examines a pair of binoculars.
It all looks innocent enough as the security guard puts up the binoculars to his eyes.
But there is more to things than it first appears when the security guard then unscrews one of the lenses and then makes a gesture of raising the binoculars to his lips, as if he was drinking from it.
It would seem the binoculars are actually a novelty flask.
A similar product is advertised on retail site Amazon, which describes it as being “the perfect festival accessory” and is capable of holding 16oz of liquid.
It is currently being sold for £16.95.
Many commentators on the social media site found the brief clip hilarious.
One said: “Hahahaha thats actually funny. The smirk at the end.”
A second added: “”No no no, my friend…” hahaha. I love how the different ethnicities of the security agencies are figuring stuff out together.”
Others though questioned if the binoculars actually contained hand sanitiser, rather than the suspected banned alcohol.
However, one commentator quickly shot down that theory by writing: “I don’t think he will go through this effort to smuggle a sanitiser lol.”
The match though failed to come to life and ended up in a goalless draw.
Later on in the match, substitute Raul Jimenez came on with 20 minutes to go, but he wasted a good break and Mexico could not create a clear-cut chance.
Grzegorz Krychowiak fired wide in stoppage-time from distance, and Lewandowski and Poland were left to rue missing their golden opportunity.
