World Cup Referee Caught Accepting $600 From An Undercover Journalist

Quote


Footage from a documentary on corruption in African soccer, shared exclusively with the BBC, shows World Cup assistant referee Adel Range Marwa accepting a $600 gift from an undercover journalist posing as a Ghanaian soccer official. Marwa, the only referee from Kenya set to participate in the World Cup, has resigned his position.

Sorta off-topic, but I see that the US, Canada, and Mexico won the bid for the 2026 World Cup! That's pretty neat, right?

Now that the US is not in it I will probably cheer for Iceland.

Fun fact, the US Military protects Iceland because the country is so small it can't have a military big enough to defend itself. Therefore if Iceland wins it all the US should get some credit too because we protect them from harm. :)

Your fun fact made Iceland's story even more amazing! Between the entire country having only around 300k people, to their manager also being a dentist, to this being their first-ever World Cup appearance, to having to play Argentina in their opening match, it just gets keeps better and better!

Two late game goals.   Having played this game at a decent level, I can't even imagine the pain of losing a game in the 95th minute on an own goal.   Brutal doesn't even begin to describe it.

Love him or hate him, Ronaldo is amazing.  What an amazing match that was to watch.   Maybe the goal of the cup from Spain, and Ronaldo with an incredible set piece goal.

Argentina vs. Iceland coming up. Messi is my favorite player to watch, but Iceland is very, very fun to watch. 

 

Too bad Messi played so poorly.  Iceland was much better defensively than I expected and did a good job of shutting down Argentina.
