You know you’ve really screwed up when you’ve managed to anger those Canadians
Wow. It takes a lot for Canadians to find fault with Castrolandia. Yet, this Canadian editorial exposes and denounces the rottenness of the slave plantations's sports system, which selects players according to political correctness and forces them to play even while injured. Will FIFA do anything? Not likely. But if you go directly to this article, you can at least voice your opinion in a survey.
Cuba should receive FIFA ban for actions
Islanders' actions questioned match integrity
By Kurtis Larson, Toronto Sun, October 14, 2012
SAN PEDRO SULA, HONDURAS - Soccer’s governing body should issue the Cuban federation a ban for failing to field a competitive side during Friday night’s World Cup qualifier in Toronto.
Following his side’s 3-0 loss, Cuban head coach Alexander Gonzalez admitted that the islanders travelled with just 15 players, four of which he said “left the team” after Cuba’s arrival.
Beyond travelling with a skeleton squad, one that withered to 11 players before Friday night’s one-sided affair, Gonzalez attempted to defend his player selection, a roster full of names that hadn’t previously taken part in the tournament.
“There were some new faces,” Gonzalez said through a translator. “I’m trying to integrate some new players into the team. I chose players to come to this game who have a passion and a love of the game.”
Gonzalez, a former Cuban international himself, continued by saying multiple players he selected played through injury – another shocking admission that questioned the integrity of the contest.
“There were two players who were injured,” Gonzalez said. “I want to try and integrate and unify the team and introduce some new players into the program.”
As Cuba was eliminated from World Cup contention before Friday’s match, it’s conceivable that the federation left many of its top players at home due to defection fears.
“I put out the lineup that I thought I needed to play,” said Gonzalez, when asked if it was fair to the rest of the group. “(Honduras and Panama) need to look out for themselves.”
And FIFA, or CONCACAF, need to do the right thing and eliminate the nonsense that has become so prevalent within the region.
