In the run-up to the game that faced the team against Germany, the British journalist raised a question that left the coach and the player in awe. “In Morocco it is illegal to have a gay relationship, do you have any gay players on the team and how is their life in Morocco?”. It must be remembered that Moroccan legislation punishes relationships between people of the same sex with prison terms of up to three years and fines of up to 1,000 dirhams (94.09 euros), as RTVE recalls.

Chebback removed his earpiece and looked at his trainer before smiling. The reaction of the FIFA official was immediate: “It’s a very political we will limit ourselves to questions related to football.”

“No, it’s not politics. It’s about people, it has nothing to do with politics. Please, let her answer the question,” the correspondent insisted. According CNNa FIFA representative warned the British reporter once the press conference ended.

A day after the incident, the British public broadcaster discredited his professional. “We recognize that the question was inappropriate”, they state, while stressing that “we had no intention of causing any harm”.

As far as sports is concerned, Morocco lost in its debut in the competition against Germany by a bulky 6-0. The competition can be seen in our country through RTVE.
