Brasilia, Dec 25 (Prensa Latina) Brazilian soccer team technical director Adenor Leonardo Bacchi revealed that defensive midfielder Fernandinho declined to join the national team in the face of threats that stand today today after registering an own goal at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

In the quarterfinals of that tournament, the Manchester City English club player scored the goal in his own door in the match against Belgium. Finally, Brazil lost the match 2-1 and had to leave the World Cup.

As expected, fans on social networks and some media harshly questioned Fernandinho, who warned that he and his family are now under threat.

'I went to speak personally with him, because the Brazilian team is very proud of having a player with that dignity and professional competence. . . I hope he has light, I will support him a lot, 'Bachi told a local sports television station.

But the footballer answered no, by promising his family that he would not play with the green shirt again.

News media reported that Fernandinho could fear for what happened to the Colombian player Andrés Escobar, who scored an own goal against the United States in the 1994 World Cup and in a nightclub in Medellin he met his death after being shot by two members of organized crime.

Escobar died on July 2, 1994 after that duel in which Colombia was out of the world and Escobar had the misfortune to score a goal against.

The quarrel that caused his death originated when they began to scream autogol in the nightly establishment.
