A serious question has been raised if FIFA should ban Russia from the World cup due to their attack on Ukraine.

FIFA has been called to look into the case of Russia in World Cup after a serious incident happened this week which has claimed the lives of the innocent one and have sadden not only the Citizen of Ukraine but the football world in general.

The Russia attacked the Ukraine and this has been the largest attack on a European country since the World War ii.

Lots of prominent people have commented on the issue while the United Nations have begged the Russian President Vladimir Putin to halt the attack on the Ukrainian soil for the sake of humanity.

Vladimir Putin has put a deaf ear to the plea as the attack is still going as at the time of writing this.

Many have reacted to this issue as some of the sporting event has stop due to the huge attack from Russia.

Sporting games in the Ukraine has been put on hold has various football games have been canceled due to the attack.

Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko reacted to the attack as he posted on his Instagram story saying: “I hope you die the most painful suffering death, creature,” read the caption on Putin’s picture.

Showing support the Ukrainian and condemning the actions of the Russian government the UEFA moved the Champions League final from Russia to France.

European governing body, UEFA, announced Friday that its Champions League final would no longer be held in St. Petersburg. “UEFA … strongly condemns the ongoing Russian military invasion in Ukraine,” UEFA said in a statement as president Aleksander Ceferin stripped the 68,000-capacity Gazprom Arena of the showpiece event.

Even Gianni Infantino, the gaff-prone president of soccer’s world governing body, FIFA, was resolute in his condemnation of Putin’s warmongering. “FIFA condemns the use of force by Russia in Ukraine and any type of violence to resolve conflicts,” he said in a statement.

On Friday, popular club in England Manchester United terminated its sponsorship deal with Russia’s national airline, Aeroflot, which the British government had already banned from U.K. airports as part of a raft of sanctions. “In light of events in Ukraine, we have withdrawn Aeroflot’s sponsorship rights,” the club said in a statement. “We share the concerns of our fans around the world and extend our sympathies to those affected.”

Sportscliffs reported that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic have also come under criticism as Labour MP Chris Bryant told the House of Commons Russian-Israeli billionaire should have his assets seized, questioned whether he should be allowed to operate a football club himself, and quoted a leaked government document suggesting he should not be allowed to be based in the UK.

Sportscliffs reported earlier that the Poland has refused to play against the Russian in the World Cup qualifier.

Robert Lewandowski stated that: “It is the right decision! I can’t imagine playing a match with the Russian National Team in a situation when armed aggression in Ukraine continues. Russian footballers and fans are not responsible for this, but we can’t pretend that nothing is happening.”

Does that mean that will be a disqualification for the Poland team according to the FIFA rules, or will the Russian be exempted from the world cup.

According to one of the reactions on twitter that says if Poland get disqualified by FIFA for not playing Russia in the qualifier, then other Nations should not participate in the World cup.

The attack on Ukraine by Russia is not encouraged by other Nations and this is putting the sports world in jeopardy.

FIFA will have no choice than to disqualify the Russians from participating in the World cup.



Here are some of the reactions on twitter.
