But her arrival at the Al Rayyan Stadium, unfortunately, left her grimacing.

Taft took to TikTok to show what it’s like for women at the World Cup this year, showing the “special gate” she has to go through.

She said: “I just had to go through a special gate in Qatar for ladies only. Somehow I don’t feel all that special about it.”

And while some fans were left less than impressed, with one commenting: “Why are you whispering? Speak up; tell em how wrong it is”

Others were less phased by the “special gate,” with one saying: “It’s segregation based on sex. A cultural thing. It’s not supposed to make you feel special…but the shorter lines will help.”

While another said: “It’s a different culture. We should respect all cultures.”

Regardless, Taft still seems excited to be covering the World Cup, having shared a video of her on the sideline on Sunday with a beaming smile captioned: “I’M AT THE WORLD CUP!!! [soccer ball emoji]”

The World Cup continues on Tuesday with favorites Argentina taking on Saudi Arabia, Denmark facing Tunisia, Mexico facing Poland, and reigning champions France taking on Australia.
