Indonesia sorry for online racism after Guinea loss ends Olympic dream

JAKARTA: Indonesia’s football association apologised on Friday ( May 10 ) after supporters directed racist remarks at Guinea’s people online following a 1- 0 playoff battle that ended the Southeast Asian world’s expectations of Olympic certification.

Since the Soviet Union had withdrawn them from the 1956 Games in Melbourne, they would have won the first sport competition there would have been in almost seven years.

Some Indian fans, as well as those of the country’s best athletes, were quick to bombard the American nation’s social media accounts after Guinea won the gold medal medalist position.

” The participants leave with their eyes raised and ready to lose.” So we’re hoping the supporters will do the same, said Arya Mahendra Sinulingga, a part of the sports association’s executive committee.

He claimed that Indian fans ‘ online racist remarks were regrettable and that those responsible were not genuine Red and White followers.

” Do n’t destroy the Indonesia U- 23 national team’s battle with racist comment towards opposing people”, he said.

These young folks also have much dreams. Please refrain from bigoted activities that are both embarrassing and harmful to society. We have a goal in mind: to continue supporting the regional staff.

Guinea will then execute in Group A alongside number country France, USA and New Zealand.

FIFA, a world basketball organization, announced that it will be their first time participating in the Olympic soccer competition in 56 years.
