Uruguay players who were knocked out by Korea were punished by FIFA
Fifa’s disciplinary action has been finalized for Uruguay’s national football team players who protested strongly to the referee, unable to accept the result of failing to advance to the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar due to Korea.
Uruguay, led by coach Diego Alonso, recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss in Group H of the last World Cup in Qatar. In Uruguay’s situation, they couldn’t advance to the round of 16 even after winning 2-0 in their last game against Ghana, and at the time, if they had scored one more goal, they could have advanced to the round of 16, so they couldn’t help but be more angry.
The behavior of some Uruguay players who couldn’t hold back their anger after the match was also a problem. Four players, Jose Jimenez, Fernando Muslera, Edinson Cavani, and Diego Godin, protested wildly around the German referee, Daniel Sibert, who was in charge of the game at the time. Cavani also deliberately damaged a VAR monitor as he left the pitch.
On the 28th, FIFA imposed a fine of 20,000 euros 먹튀검증 each on Jimenez and Muslera, who protested by pushing the body of a FIFA official through a statement on the 28th, and suspended them for 4 A matches. Cavani and Godin were each fined 15,000 euros (about 20.14 million won) and suspended for one game in A match. In addition to these fines and penalties, the four players mentioned have to go through the football community service program required by FIFA.
Meanwhile, the Uruguay Football Association (AUF) was also disciplined. Not only the Uruguayan players, but also some ignorant fans were found to have committed racist acts and were forced to pay a fine of 50,000 euros (approximately 67.14 million won). In addition, I was instructed to close some seats in the stadium during the A-match home game.
