Orphanage employee replaced child who to be fielded with football players during England v Tunisia
The child of the social rehabilitation center employee was enrolled in the orphan asylum before the match so that no one noticed the substitution of children.
In Volgograd, the pupil of the social rehabilitation center from Kamyshin was not allowed to enter the field with the players before the England v Tunisia match at the World Cup at Volgograd Arena, because the son of the orphanage bookkeeper was fielded instead of him.
As the local newspaper Vysota 102 informs, the child of the social rehabilitation center employee was enrolled in the orphan asylum before the match, so that no one noticed the substitution of children.
According to the edition, the son of the orphanage bookkeeper was allegedly listed in a group that cares for children from families which are in follow-up by children's services as disadvantaged or underserved.
The selection of children for the participation in the opening of the match was carried out through the competition. Children aged 6-10 years had to send an essay to the charitable foundation of Yelena Isinbayeva about their sports strides and achievements. Also, the child had to answer why it was vital for him to take part in such an action. The competition resulted in the selection of children entitled to field holding the players’ hands.
Recall, the World Cup is currently ongoing in Russia. In the near future, the group stage will be almost over. The 2018 World Cup final will be held on July 15.
