Home / Soccer News / FIFA congratulates Rafa Marquez and questions whether he will participate in Russia 2018


The Atlas Red Rojinegros defender, Rafael Márquez, was congratulated on social networks by FIFA due to his 39th birthday, but the governing body of world football questioned whether the ‘Kaiser’ will be at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.Through his official Twitter account, FIFA sent a message of congratulations to Márquez, who stood out as the captain of the Mexican National Team in the last four world championships and asked fans if he will play his fifth world cup.
“Happy birthday @RafaMarquezMX Will you be in your fifth world cup in Russia and will match the all-time record?” Said FIFA.

However, the extra court situation that the former Barcelona player goes through could prevent him from participating in his summer fifth and equal the mark of the Mexican Antonio ‘Tota’ Carbajal and the German Lothar Matthaeus. The head office is investigated by the US Department of the Treasury and would have to be removed from this list to be eligible by Juan Carlos Osorio.
Meanwhile, Rafael Marquez, who does not participate in the Bancomer League since Date 2 of the 2019 Clausura, could reappear in tonight’s match against Necaxa.
