World Cup 2022.. Disciplinary measures against Ecuador, and the reason?

FIFA has taken disciplinary action against the Ecuadorian federation for offensive "chanting" by fans of the Latin national team last Sunday.

This came during the opening match of the World Cup, from which he emerged victorious against Qatar, with a score (2-0).

The international body did not specify the chants, but indicated that it relied on Article No. 13 of its disciplinary code, which punishes the event of "insulting the dignity or integrity of a country, person, or group with insulting, discriminatory, or offensive words."

FIFA punishes such actions with a “10-match ban” when it comes to a player or official, a fine of “not less than 20,000 Swiss francs” (about 20,400 euros), and a match behind closed doors when it targets a federation.

This is the first disciplinary measure in the tournament, which concludes on December 18.
