Ally McCoist once lost her Qatari phone during the 2022 World Cup, just six hours after receiving it.

The beloved pundit and commentator has been a highlight of ITV coverage so far, providing the channel with his famous sense of humour, brilliant perspectives and historic one-liners during periods of co-comm .

On the 974 stadium site, commentator Jon Champion remarked that the ground is built from 974 shipping containers which could be reused for the 2030 tournament should Uruguay secure the rights to host the tournament. McCoist joked that he couldn’t help but think of the shipping containers floating around the Atlantic, when Champion mentioned the other reason for the stadium’s name.

Qatar’s dialing code is also 974. In a perfect commentary sequence, Champion then mentioned that McCoist hadn’t had too much luck with Qatari phones during their stay in the Gulf state, having lost his. recently.
