FIFA opened investigation against Mexico for “homophobic” behavior during World Cup

FIFA decided to open a disciplinary procedure against the Mexican Football Federation on Tuesday June 18, after reports of the match against Germany on its debut at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The problem for El Tri is that the behavior of the fans could affect the team, because with the process underway, the sanctions imposed by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee can go from a fine to the loss of points in the tournament, which would be catastrophic for Mexico’s national team.

One of the main reports to which FIFA appeals is that of the three anti-discrimination observers, who were present at the Moscow stadium, as part of the anti-discrimination monitoring system implemented by the agency, which has previously reported on multiple occasions, the bad behavior of Mexican fans.

FIFA has declared that the chant is absolutely “homophobic” and therefore it has to be forbidden.
