Russian Federation responds to United Kingdom boycott threats

Russian Federation responds to United Kingdom boycott threats

Jose Mourinho brands Frank De Boer "the worst manager in the history of the Premier League" after he criticised Mourinho's treatment of Marcus Rashford.

"As we expected, the United Kingdom is especially active, being unable to forgive Russian Federation for winning the right to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup in a fair struggle".

In a statement given to Press Association Sport, Rhondda MP Chris Bryant said: "To my mind, this is blood money, paid directly from the Russian state coffers".

RT, formerly known as Russia Today, was set up in the mid-2000s to counter what Russian President Vladimir Putin saw as the dominance of American and British worldwide media organisations and their allegedly pro-Western bias.

Mourinho is not the only high-profile football figure connected to RT, with former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel and ex-Liverpool winger Stan Collymore also working for the channel.

Former Scottish National Party leader Salmond faced similar criticism when he became a presenter for RT past year.

Twitch Offering More Free Games to Prime Subscribers Each Month
Twitch has routinely given away free games and in-game content to Twitch Prime subscribers in the past. According to a post on the company's blog , Twitch Prime subscribers can keep those games forever.

Sources have told ESPN FC there are no plans for the English Football Association to hold talks regarding any potential boycott, but the foreign ministry for this summer's host nation responded with criticism to the prospect of any withdrawal by the England national team.

"RT has repeatedly conned viewers with a veneer of respectability, while taking its orders from the Kremlin".

"England's participation in the World Cup ought to be in question", Woodcock told BBC Radio 5.

As tensions rise between the United Kingdom and Russian Federation, the latter has brought up winning the right to host the 2018 World Cup over England. "I would urge leading football figures to rethink - not least after this week's revelations - whether their punditry on Putin's mouthpiece is appropriate".

Former double agent Mr Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33, were found slumped on a bench in Salisbury city centre on 4 March.

Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia, remain in a critical condition after they were exposed to what United Kingdom authorities have described as a "nerve agent" in the English city of Salisbury earlier this month. British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that it was "highly likely" that Russian Federation was behind the attack and promised "extensive measures" against the country if an explanation was not provided.
