Four Argentina’s fan wear a one-piece tshirt representing their national flag as they wait in the grandstand before the Russia 2018 World Cup Group D football match between Argentina and Croatia at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on June 21, 2018.

(AP) – An Argentina fan has been banned from attending World Cup matches after posting a sexist video in which he encouraged a Russian woman to say offensive things in Spanish.

The video shows the fan asking the young woman who didn’t understand Spanish to repeat provocative phrases.

Argentine government security official Guillermo Madero, who is in Russia, told The Associated Press that the fan “won’t be able to enter stadiums at the tournament and he won’t be able to watch World Cup matches.”

Madero had filed a formal request with Argentine authorities, which then gave the fan’s name to Russian security forces. The fan’s identification card, which supporters are required to show to enter stadiums in Russia, was then taken away from him.

A Colombian fan who posted a separate video with a female Japanese fan also had his fan ID confiscated so that he can’t attend matches.

The sexist videos are among a string of incidents in which some Latin American fans are encouraging foreign women to say offensive things in languages they don’t appear to understand.
