August 27, 2023

FIFA suspended Luis Rubiales as president of Spain's football federation on Saturday for kissing Women's World Cup player Jenni Hermoso on the lips, while even his close friend Jorge Vilda joined the tidal wave of criticism. Later Saturday the majority of the women's team's coaching staff offered their resignations over Rubiales' conduct, although controversial coach Vilda was not among them. Hermoso and 80 other Spain players, including the entire World Cup squad, said they will not play for the national team until the "leadership" changes. Players from World Cup runners-up England released a statement in support of Hermoso on their social networks, signed "The Lionesses". Before the tournament 15 Spain players had taken a similar stance against the federation and Vilda, but many relented and three were part of the World Cup team.
