More homophobic chants by Mexico soccer fans delay game against Canada

Soccer insider James Sharman discusses what he'd like to see from FIFA as punishment for the Mexican fans' unacceptable homophobic chants, and why they need to start docking points from the club.

Officials delayed a World Cup qualifying game between Mexico and visiting Canada on Thursday night because of homophobic chants at Azteca Stadium.

FIFA originally ordered Mexico to play two home games without fans after the chants were heard at an Olympic qualifying tournament in June.

The penalty was eventually reduced to one game, allowing fans to be in attendance for the 1-1 draw against Canada.
