In order to be consistent in its decision to avoid controversy abroad, Winazki wrote, the national team should also “not play in Russia, because the Kremlin was behind the decision to launch military incursions in Syria in complicity with the tyrant Bashar Assad, causing the deaths of thousands of citizens of that country.”
It should also stay away from Iceland due to its involvement in alliances “that invaded Iraq and Afghanistan by blood and fire,” he wrote.
“Nor against Nigeria in protest against the atrocities perpetrated by the terrorist group Boko Haram against thousands of victims, mostly women,” he said.

“We will not play against Spain, for its colonial enclaves in Ceuta and Melilla” on the Moroccan coast, Winazki added, and “for the electrified gates at those sites that kill migrants.”
