The last few months have been a nightmare for the Mexican Soccer Federation. And, despite the campaigns they have carried out in full, as well as with sponsors, they have not yet been able to eradicate the homophobic cry that has already brought them sanctions from FIFA.
At a press conference, FIFA President Gianni Infantino described it as an idiotic habit, showing his rejection of this action by Mexican fans, which already led to the Concacaf Qualifying match against Jamaica being played behind closed doors at the Azteca Stadium and there could be a new punishment for the shout during the match against Canada on Date 4 of the qualifier to Qatar 2022.
“I know that the Mexican Soccer Federation, with its president and the teams, are working to eradicate these idiotic, discriminatory customs in the stadiums, we have to go, get angry, celebrate, but we don't have to insult. This is not right, ”Infantino explained.
"All those who do not want to see, all those who want to live in the time of the stones, to stay outside the stadiums," added the leader of the international organization. Within FIFA, demonstrations of this type are considered inadmissible, where racism is also an issue that is on the agenda.
