No Fair FIFA

Fifa have decided to ban matches at altitude. This comes after Peru had decided to move their world cup qualifiers to Cuzco.

There's me in goal playing football at altitude in Peru in 2006. I ran to the white line to get the ball and my vision went black, there was just no oxygen. It was a tough game of football, but we won so it's ok.

Fifa say it's for safety reasons, which I agree with, but I also think it is a bit biased towards the South American super powers.

And I also played football in the jungle and that was way harder than altitude!!!!
