Infantino said Rubiales’ act ruined the evening of the women’s World Cup final and what followed should never have happened. The well-deserved celebrations of these magnificent champions were spoiled by what happened after the final whistle, Infantino wrote on Instagram. And what continued in the days that followed. It should not have happened.
Rubiales, who attended the presentation of the Women’s World Cup final, was seen grabbing Hermoso’s face and kissing her on the lips before patting her on the back. While Rubiales kissed the cheek of virtually every Spanish soccer player who came to collect medals that day, he went too far for Hermoso.
FIFA suspended Rubiales from any soccer activity at the national and international level for 90 days while the investigation continues.
FIFA’s disciplinary bodies immediately assumed their duties and took the necessary action. The disciplinary proceedings will continue in accordance with the law, added Infantino, who attended the trophy presentation after the final.
On our part, we must continue to focus on how to further support women and women’s soccer both on and off the pitch. To hold true values and respect the players as individuals and for their fantastic performances.
