At the World Cup 2018 with the German national team, fans from Mexico shouted homophobic insults. This was when the goalkeeper of the German national team Manuel Neuer knocked the ball kick from the gate. FIFA began collecting information on the incident, according to Reuters.

When the final decision is made, it is not yet clear, but at large tournaments this is done quickly.

Previously, Mexico had already been fined for insults during qualifying matches for the tournament. Mexican football officials after that appealed to the fans with a request to behave correctly, pointing out that at any time in the case of incidents of this nature the match can be stopped, and the team is considered defeated.
