American soccer writer Grant Wahl was honored with a FIFA tribute at the England v France press desk where he was due to work on Saturday night.
The American died in the World Cup in the early hours of Saturday after covering the Netherlands vs. Argentina.
And FIFA placed a bouquet of white lilies and a framed photograph of Wahl, taken in Qatar, with tributes from around the world to the 48-year-old journalist.
“Tonight we pay tribute to Grant Wahl in his assigned seat at Al Bayt Stadium. He should have been here,” FIFA said in a statement.
“Our thoughts are with his wife Céline, his family and his friends at this very difficult time.”
Wahl fell ill while working during extra time in the quarter-final tie between the Netherlands and Argentina on Friday at Lusail Stadium.
He was treated by medical personnel in the press box and later transferred by ambulance to hospital.
He was reporting on his eighth World Cup.
