By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Very well-known ESPN Deportes sportscaster and presenter on the leading Jorge Ramos y su Banda Show, Hernán Pereyra, blasted Concacaf for not saying a word on the Belize team bus assault in Haiti.
Pereyra, an Argentine journalist who lives football with passion, seemed extremely annoyed, on Tuesday, when he made the following discourse on ESPN’s Spanish service:
“Why is there no communiqué from Concacaf? Why is there no support? Why does everyone keep their mouth shut? Why do they look elsewhere? Because we have to play and play and play? Because the games are already scheduled? Because there are no other dates to play the game?
If all of that is more important than the life of the Belize football players itself, who can say this is not going to end in a tragedy? Nobody can guarantee that. But we must protect the human being who is more important than any sporting competition.
Of course, it’s just Belize. Who cares about Belize?
If it were Brazil, the match would already have been suspended. If it were Mexico, the United States, Argentina, Spain, Germany, the game would not be played. They would already have another venue. And maybe they would even have suspended the local federation. I’m not saying suspend Haiti, but yes, change the venue of the game. The game cannot be played on Thursday on Haitian territory.
Concacaf must talk. Not shut up as in the case of St. Lucia that suddenly said ‘We will not play the qualifiers.’
FIFA has to talk, not as in then case of St Lucia. They also did not issue a press release and just took them out of the schedule. No one knows why St. Lucia will not play the World Cup qualifiers.
Dead Silence. Dead silence. And we must look the other way.
That’s how FIFA operates. That’s how Concacaf operates.
