How a ‘hunt for beers’ became a night to remember with ‘monkeys, exotic birds and lions’ at ‘palace of Sheikh’s son’ for these England fans

    An evening at a palace of a Sheikh’s son with monkeys, lions and exotic birds…

    No, this is not part of the plotline of the The Hangover 4, but an unexpected adventure these England fans appeared to have had out in Qatar.

    Alex and his travelling party have made memories to last a lifetime before the football has even started!

    On an evening which started out as a ‘hunt for beers’, a group of England fans got talking to Nawaf and Abdul Aziz, who were clearly more clued up on the area.

    They decided to go back to their home, with one of them claiming to be the son of a Sheikh, and the Three Lions supporters hit the jackpot.

    England and Everton fan Alex told talkSPORT: “We were just having a good time, having a mooch, getting our bearings right and the set-up’s spot on. We’ve been enjoying ourselves.”

    Meanwhile, John, who was part of the party added: “Last night we met one of the Sheikh’s sons and he took us back to the palace and he showed us, he had lions and everything.

    “They’ve made us so welcome and look around you, it doesn’t get any better than this.”

    Alex added: “We were on a hunt for some beers and they said ‘We’ll sort beers’, so we jumped into the back of his Toyota Land Cruiser, ended up in a big palace.

    “We were in the back and he showed us monkeys, his exotic birds, it was nuts.”

    And as you can see from some of the videos that were sent to us, the night appears to have been as nuts as it sounded!
