Posted In: News Date:Jul 18th, 2018

Africa won the football World Cup for France, and Europe should end discrimination against immigrants, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has said.

Speaking in the capital, Caracas, state television quoted him as saying:

The French team won, although it looked like an African team. Actually, Africa won - the African immigrants who have arrived in France. I hope Europe receives that message...

No more racism in Europe against the African people, no more discrimination against immigrants."
