Singing street marshals are Qatar World Cup’s surprise stars

Osama, 21 years-old, from Palestine works as a street marshal prior to the World Cup group G soccer match between Brazil and Serbia, at the Lusail Stadium in Lusail, Qatar, Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022. The World Cup 2010 in South Africa had Shakira. The 1998 World Cup in France had Ricky Martin. In Qatar, the tune that nests itself in the head is the incessant chanting of street marshals, better knows as Last Mile Marshals. Seated all over Doha on high chairs more commonly used by lifeguards at swimming pools, these migrant workers have become a staple of the Middle East's first World Cup. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)
