Majority of soccer players here were poor in the past. Mostly in the national team. That's why the team represents the people, not the government. Poor people can be proud of the team to be inspired by them and try to strive even more to reach success like they did. It's some happiness in the middle of this shit. Of course, if i had power to make a equal country, i would do it, but only the people united can do something to change this. And even before revolutions people had o little bit of happiness in their life in some way. Again: Loving football doesn't make people not fighting for their rights.
