RIO DE JANEIRO: FIFA said on Saturday that it has launched an inquiry into Argentina’s “provocative” unfurling of a banner laying claim to the Falkland islands at a friendly game just before the World Cup. Argentine players displayed the banner proclaiming “Las Malvinas Son Argentinas (The Malvinas are Argentinian)” to the crowd before a friendly against Slovenia in La Plata five days ahead of the World Cup. Argentina could be fined at the end of the inquiry, officials said.
