I think the article has been/will be updated, but a follow up tweet noted other members of the band are included in the group of people being paid by Qatar, too.

I hope all right-minded England supporters make their feelings known to the band for accepting Qatari blood money.

Oh! FIFA have told us we have to "focus on the football". We mustn't be worrying our pretty little heads about stuff like this

Don't care about the England band at matches in the slightest, it's never bothered me. But this really does bother me, the fact that Qatar/FIFA are paying people to make out everything is wonderful at this disgusting tournament. It's not only completely fake but those individuals who have taken the money are vile and complicit.

I imagine it’s been the same for other countries fans, it would be great if they all launched into civil disobedience as soon as the cameras get on them, then hotfoot it out of the stadium and onto planes back to wherever they have come from, sadly won’t happen though.

For the period of this revolting tournament, I shall be filling my boots with Non-League football around our wonderful county, and perhaps even further afield with the mighty Worthing FC.
