ESPN: FIFA opens case over Mexican fans’ homophobic chants at World Cup

MOSCOW, 1 Dec – The International Football Federation (FIFA) has opened a disciplinary case due to homophobic chants of fans of the Mexican national team in the third round match of the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar against the team of Saudi Arabia, reports ESPN.
Earlier, FIFA launched an investigation due to offensive chants of the fans of the Mexican national team in the first round match against the Poles (0:0). According to El Universal, Mexican chants were homophobic.
It is noted that FIFA has not announced the time of consideration of two disciplinary cases.
On Wednesday, the Mexicans beat the national team of Saudi Arabia (2:1), but this was not enough to reach the playoffs. The Mexican national team finished third in the Group C table and did not leave the group at the world championship for the first time since 1978.
