England fans can drink beer during matches at the World Cup in Qatar – as long as it’s non-alcoholic Budweiser Zero.

The news comes after it was revealed alcoholic lager will cost around £13-a-pint when the event starts in 60 days.

Ticket holders will be able to buy pricey pints within the stadium perimeter before and after matches.

But while the match is in progress and at half-time, Budweiser Zero will be the only beer on sale for around £6-a-pint.

Ivan Toney, who could be playing in front of England fans in Qatar, blasted Arsenal as “cringey”.

The international new boy enraged the Gunners by posting “Nice kickabout with the boys” after his Brentford side beat them 2-0 last season.

That tweet was repeated by Alexandre Lacazette when Arsenal defeated the Bees at the Emirates last term — and again by Gabriel when his team won 3-0 at Brentford on Sunday.

But striker Toney — called up by England for the first time before Friday’s clash with Italy — said: “Once was funny but the second time was a bit cringey.

“I bit my tongue, I wanted to reply, I wanted to nibble.

“But fair play to them, they played very well. They are a different Arsenal side to what we played before. They are doing well.”

Transfer guru Christoph Freund has confirmed he’s snubbed Chelsea to stay at RB Salzburg.

The RB sporting director says he was “proud” to hold talks with the Blues about a similar role but leaving his Austrian club was “out of the question”.

And despite the next transfer window being MONTHS away, Arsenal are eyeing a move for a midfielder.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Jesper Lindstrom has landed himself on the radar of the North London club.

The 22-year-old helped the German side win the Europa League last term.
