Federation Internationale de Football Association warns Mexico over discriminatory chants at Confed Cup

Reuters picMOSCOW, June 21 ― World football governing body Fifa said yesterday it had warned Mexico over what it said were "insulting and discriminatory" chants during their first Confederations Cup match in Russian Federation.

This Wednesday, June 21, 2017 (11:00 AM Pacific) Mexico will play New Zealand at the Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht in Sochi, Russia for a group stage match in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. "We are here to watch some great football", Infantino said.

"They have that edge the All Blacks have in rugby". Now we have to think about the next match because we must win. Young manager Anthony Hudson will once again look to Chris Wood to finish off any half-chances as New Zealand will try to frustrate Mexico and hit them on the break and from set pieces.

Osario was keen to talk down any over-confidence in the Mexico camp as they hunt a victory to boost their hopes of reaching the semi-finals.

"We can all agree that Mexico are a world-class team, so I am expecting a really, really good game and I expect us to show a lot of spirit".

"I tell you that tomorrow we have a very important game. It will be tough".

In addition to covering the Confederations Cup, Tencent has won exclusive media rights in China for the 2017 Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 World Cup, hosted by India.

"We're going to be positive, we're going to be fearless".

Mexico controlled possession and spent more time in Portugal's area, but the Euro 2016 champions were a constant threat on the counterattack in front of 34,372 fans at the Kazan Arena.

"In some regards, they have that team spirit which represents not only the New Zealander national soccer team, but also the All Blacks and rugby teams". "We want to send a big hug to everyone in Portugal for what they are going through, which is absolutely awful".

MLS referees have been among the first in the world to experiment and train as VARs ahead of the introduction of video replay in MLS following August's All-Star Game, presented by Target.
