It's a shame that even huge nations can't stand up to the might of FIFA
I quite agree. I hate fifa and everything about it.
It is a constant disappointment to me that no one stands up to them. England and Scotland are the only countries who have had the integrity to point out the corruption in the ranks of fifa, but they are alone, everyone else prefers to kowtow to emperor Splatter. I would love to see countries breaking away from it. I would prefer to be left out in the cold than have anything to do with them. The world cup has become a pitiful spectacle: teams of cheating, feigning, diving, millionaire cry-baby prim donnas who are unfortunately idolized by so many children.
A couple of years ago we had the woman’s fifa world cup here in Coquimbo. What a refreshing view of football. Ok, so there was less speed and power, but there was a lot of skill, sportsmanship (or should that be sportswomanship) and good grace.
Is this law valid for foreign fanatics especially English ones ?
I say English/England becouse they have no named national team as UK/Britannia.
Anheuser-Busch InBev Ambev , a Brazilian Belgian company that sponsors the world cup also lobbied hard to sell beer in the stadiums only during the world cup.
