  1. Third World nation with Third World views, all thanks to the spread of bigoted homophobic Christian views on the issue of homosexuality and the disinformation of the LGBT community.

  2. FIFA is useless.

    They awarded the world cup to homophobic hellhole Qatar.

  3. There goes their chance of the cup.

    lgtb people really should mount a strong campaign against FIFA’s homophobic tolerance. especially qatar.

  5. Typical homophobic bullshit from black bigots. They should just kick all africans out of FIFA.

    1. Yeah, fight homophobia with racism, that’ll sort it all out won’t it. I can’t imagine that making things worse for all of us.

    2. Why bother posting? Prat.

  6. Just read this and straight afterwards I looked up and on the tv was an advert about RESPECT, coming from FIFA, I had to Laugh…..

    The International Gay & Lesbian Football Association (IGLFA) will be requesting FIFA to conduct a full investigation of these homophobic comments and to sanction them accordingly. We feel that FIFA needs to send a “strong message” so that this will not occur again,.whether it be in Nigeria or elsewhere.
