FIFA said Thursday it was investigating Mexico’s fans amid reports that the supporters chanted anti-gay slogans during their country’s World Cup game against Cameroon. “We have opened proceedings against Mexico for improper conduct of supporters. As the proceedings are ongoing we are not in a position comment further,” FIFA spokeswoman Delia Fischer.

FIFA did not give details of the investigation. But media reports said Mexican supporters hurled the abuse at Cameroon’s goalkeeper during their 1-0 Group A win on June 13.
