A friendly match with the participation of the former hosts of the World Cup was interrupted by a strange situation.

New racist scandal in football. This time, the New Zealand team suffered. Surprisingly, the Qatari footballer acted like a criminal. In Austria, the teams played a friendly match, which was finally interrupted by the refusal to continue the match by the New Zealanders. What happened?

The incident occurred shortly before the break and was not caught on camera. At the time, the New Zealanders were leading 1-0. The victim was New Zealand defender Michael Boxall. In the 40th minute, Qatari striker Yusuf Abdurisage was fouled by New Zealand midfielder Joe Bell. The players played melee, other referees may not have recorded a violation. But the match official, Manuel Schuttengruber, ruled in favor of Qatar.

Boxall approached the referee to object, then said something to Abdurisag, who was sitting on the field. Then the Qatari forward approached Michael and answered him. Half of the New Zealand team immediately reacted to this, as they were all on the side of the episode. Boxell walked up to the offender and several New Zealanders ran up to the judge and asked: “Did you hear what he said?”

Emotions overflowed on the field – a conflict broke out between the players. Angry New Zealanders surrounded the Qataris. But the referee took no action, and five minutes later the whistle for half-time was blown. And New Zealand decided not to return to the pitch after a break.

“Michael Boxall was subjected to racist abuse by a Qatari player in the first half of the match. The referees took no action, so the team agreed not to go to the second half,” the team said in a statement.

“Let the football authorities decide what happened. I think this case will definitely be under the supervision of FIFA. I asked the coaches, the judges… nobody heard anything”.

Recently, the president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, announced the creation of a committee to combat racism. He asked the Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior to direct him. “I have asked Vinicius to lead this group of players who will impose harsher penalties for racism that will then be applied by all the football authorities in the world,” Infantino said. Qatar vs New Zealand was the first occasion for a new committee meeting?
