Police Dealing With Uruguay Hotel Ordeal As Sabotage

Uruguay 600x399 Police Dealing With Uruguay Hotel Ordeal As Sabotage

BELO HORIZONTE - Uruguayan national team goalkeeper had a rough time in his hotel as well as in at the Arena Castelão in Fortaleza.  When he arrived to his hotel room, he found some insects in his bed.  This whole ordeal was documented by the Galatasaray keeper on his Twitter account the moment it happened.

The photo had a great deal of repercussion in social media as individuals retweeted and shared Muslera’s photo well over four thousand times prior to the 3-1 loss to Costa Rica this past Saturday.

 

Now this investigation took another direction as police gave a report to FIFA stating that they were dealing with sabotage. The Diario de Ceará reported that the police report stated two facts that led to the theory.

The police investigation also stated that the insects were termites and not ants as was originally mentioned.

According to the report, the police inspected the entire room in an effort to find any foreign objects or chemicals. This was also the case with the remaining 42 rooms in the second floor at the Marina Park Hotel in Fortaleza.

After the room was fixed up it was given to FIFA. According to the source within the police department they stated that if there was a problem to begin with, this would have been dealt with prior to the incident occurring.

Uruguay arrived into São Paulo on Tuesday as they prepare for their must-win match against England at the Arena Corinthians. Both sides are coming off losses in their opening matches against Costa Rica and Italy respectively.
