FIFA Opens Investigations Against Argentina For Offensive Behaviour Towards France


January 13, (THEWILL) – FIFA has announced that it has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Argentinian national football team for “offensive behaviour” during their World Cup final victory over France last month.

The South Americans defeated the defending champions in a dramatic 3-3 draw that was ultimately decided on penalties. According to FIFA, the team may have breached rules regarding “offensive behaviour and violations of the principles of fair play” and “misconduct of players and officials.”

This comes after goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez, was seen making a lewd gesture with his goalkeeper of the tournament trophy after the match, as well as being filmed in the dressing room mocking French player, Kylian Mbappe.

In addition to the investigation into the national team, FIFA is also looking into potential breaches of media and marketing regulations by the Argentinian Football Association.

FIFA is also investigating Croatia for potential violations of “discrimination” and “order and security at matches” rules. The outcome of these investigations will be eagerly awaited by fans around the world, as FIFA takes a firm stance against any behaviour that goes against the principles of fair play and respect.
