In the days leading up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, players around the world were getting ready to take to the pitch, preparing for the upcoming game.
But a couple of weeks ago, a few of those players were caught on camera, making fun of the FIFA player cards they were being issued.
In a series of video clips, the players in question were making fun and insulting the FIFA card.
It is unclear exactly what they were doing when the video was uploaded to YouTube.
The video has since gone viral, and now, the video has been pulled from YouTube, leaving millions of people who were waiting for their FIFA cards to arrive to wonder what they have been sent.
What exactly is a FIFA card?
FIFA is the global governing body of the world’s biggest sporting events.
The cards are issued by FIFA to players worldwide and are used to determine their status and eligibility to play in a tournament, which is held every four years.
In 2018, FIFA released their Player Cards, which are now the subject of controversy after a few players from Australia and Japan were caught using the cards to mock and mock their own national team.
In the video, the Australian and Japanese players make fun of themselves for wearing red shirt and blue shorts, while in Japan, the player, Yuki Kajiwara, also makes fun of himself for wearing blue shorts and red shirt.
Kajiyas head coach, Kazuya Yamamoto, was quoted as saying “This is not how it should be done”.
Kajiya was reportedly reprimanded by FIFA’s Head of Player Development, Thomas Bachmann, for his comments and was also called out by the Japanese players association, which later called out FIFA for “provoking disrespect” for Japanese culture.
FIFA has since been criticized for their handling of the situation, and Bachmann has since resigned from his position.
In a statement to Al Jazeera, FIFA said that “the FIFA Card has no bearing on the outcome of any match or match-day, nor does it impact the validity of any decision.
FIFA is committed to the highest standards of integrity and respect for all the stakeholders in the FIFA process.”FIFA’s response to the controversy, however, has not been without controversy.
In the past, they have responded to negative comments by using a number of different methods to remove them.
The most recent, a number one ranking in FIFA’s “World Rankings” was taken down in March 2018 after players complained about the number ranking being manipulated, which FIFA called “unfair and unfair”.
In March 2018, the number one spot in the world was taken off FIFA’s website, as the number 1 ranking was not fair.
In September 2018, a FIFA member in China was fined $20,000 for “insulting” a player from another country, and FIFA subsequently banned the Chinese player for four months.
The ban was later lifted, but the incident led to FIFA players being banned from the next round of the World Cup.
Last year, FIFA’s Director of Communications, Adriano Gallardo, was fired by the organization following a series on his social media channels, in which he was accused of using a racist slur.
Gallardo later apologized for the incident, and later apologized again for his tweets.
In January 2019, FIFA players from Japan were fined $50,000 by FIFA for insulting their Japanese national team during a training session.
In March 2019, two Japanese players were banned from their country’s Olympic team for wearing yellow shirts during a match against Australia.
FIFA’s response on this matter has also been mixed, with several of the players taking to social media to make their position clear.
While many have defended FIFA’s stance on the matter, the fact that it is still being used to mock the player cards, is quite upsetting.
FIFA says that the use of the player card is a sport, and that any inappropriate use of it should not be tolerated.
What the FIFA players have done is not only disrespectful, but also against the spirit of the sport.
They have done so in a way that could cause a negative reaction from the Japanese and Australian teams.
