Will racism be the narrative for the 2018 FIFA World Cup?
ESPN FC’s Shaka Hislop reports for The Undefeated
The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia may already have its narrative baked well before the first ball is kicked. The issue of racism and how FIFA, international soccer’s governing body, will respond in the event players are subjected to discriminatory chants has been a hot topic in the months leading up to the biggest sporting event in the world. The Russian Football Union insisted ahead of last year’s Confederations Cup that Russia has a “zero tolerance” approach to racism.
The proof will be in the pudding, says ESPN FC analyst Shaka Hislop, who will provide commentary and analysis for The Undefeated throughout the tournament. Here, Hislop offers his take on the one issue that could make or break this tournament.
