    Reselling ticket website Ticombo claims to have 500 tickets for England’s games against USA and Wales — but there is no guarantee fans buying from touts will be allowed entry.

    Supporters must show a ticket application number — given when they buy through the official Fifa website — before applying for a permit to enter Qatar.

    It is unclear if fans will be able to get the code if they buy seats from online touts.

    Fifa claims it received 23million applications for three million seats before the tournament, with group stage seats selling out months ago.

    A Qatar 22 source said: “Seats for the next England game have become the hottest ticket in town overnight.”
