Nuoro, youth football match ends 40-0: FIGC moves

Humiliating defeat

– The culmination of this story is “La Nova Sardinia”. Both matches took place in the Nuoro FIGC Youth Commission Provincial Championships. First, the La Caleta kids lost 22-0 to Wolves. Then, again, La Caletta took the field away from Fanum Orosei with ten men, all rookies, and therefore smaller than their opponents, and came out with a disappointing score of 40 goals to nil.

Sports and education

An exciting result that raises serious doubts about the value of sport, especially when college students go into the field. “We cannot accept such a thing – Luigi Secci, the former president of FIGC Nuoro, told Corriere della Sera -. Football schools are opened, youth tournaments are organized to teach respect to young people. Don’t humiliate them.

The question of the difference in purpose

– Everything has to do with the fact that in the last two days La Caleta has faced the two biggest teams in the standings, and they have played the first place “on his body”. Here’s Fanum’s goal explained: they needed maximum goals to make the most of the overall goal difference and beat the away team.


– On the other hand, the distractions of running this shocking game immediately caught the eye. Like the apologies previously made by Fanum to the opponent and the post posted on Facebook the day before the match, again by Fanum, to invite all the fans to come and support the boys, who should have scored as much as possible to go over their heads. .

Golead and banter

– The effects of the humiliation were already felt by the two girls: the harassment in the village and at school was very heavy and some of them left the team. Once again the former FIGC Secci defines: “Whoever is the strongest should not be ashamed, it’s just that he wins. But it is the rule that must be changed. The goalscoring team rule that puts the best in the position of needing to score a flurry of goals to claim first place.

Fig C: “Seriously, we are first and foremost teachers.”

– The case ended up on the table of Kadoni, who plans to call the federal prosecutor’s office to open an investigation to establish the facts. In this case, club presidents and coaches will be called to explain how it happened. “All this is very dangerous – he said -. At these levels, the sport must go beyond the score, it must be experienced in a playful way. Respect, pleasure and culture must come first. Score 40 goals. It is legitimate to want to win but there is a limit to everything, regardless of the rules. Maybe it’s time to stop. We are teachers first and foremost. »
