Discipline for ‘obscene ceremony’… FIFA launches disciplinary process in Argentina

The International Football Federation (FIFA) has initiated disciplinary procedures against the Football Association of Argentina, the 2022 World Cup winners in Qatar.

On the 14th, FIFA announced on its homepage that it was investigating the possibility that Argentina may have violated Articles 11 (Offensive Behavior and Violation of Fair Play Principles) and 12 (Illegal Conduct by Players and Officials) of the FIFA Disciplinary Rules. In addition, we will look at the charges of violating the media and marketing regulations of the Qatar World Cup.

Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, won the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar at Lusail Stadium in Qatar on the 18th of last month, winning 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out after over 120 minutes of extra time (3-3) against France to lift the World Cup championship trophy.

Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez performed an obscene ceremony by holding the trophy near his crotch after receiving the Golden Glove (Best Goalkeeper Award) at the awards ceremony. He also made comments mocking Kylian Mbappe of the French national team in the locker room after winning.

FIFA did not specifically mention which player or member of Argentina violated the rules, but it is speculated that the behavior of the players after the championship was confirmed may have been a problem. 메이저놀이터

According to the Associated Press, Argentine players sang and damaged the partition walls as they passed through the official interview area about three hours after the game ended.

Croatia, who lost to Argentina in the semi-finals and won the 3rd and 4th place match to finish in the final 3rd place, will also be subject to FIFA disciplinary action.

FIFA said it had initiated disciplinary proceedings against the Croatian Football Association for possible violations of Articles 13 (Discrimination) and 16 (Order and Security in Matches) during the match between Croatia and Morocco.

On the same day, FIFA also imposed sanctions on the football federations of Ecuador, Mexico and Serbia.
