The video initially appears to show Eto'o happy to pose for pictures with fans in the area outside the stadium, which staged the last-16 match between Brazil and South Korea on Monday. The man is reportedly an Algerian YouTuber who had questioned Eto'o about alleged World Cup qualifying referee match fixing. Eto'o, 41, is now the president of his country's football federation (Fecafoot) and has been a global ambassador for Qatar's World Cup organising committee since 2019.
