CONCACAF to investigate after Canada’s Bombito was targeted on social media with racist messages

ATLANTA (AP) — CONCACAF says it will investigate racist messages directed at Canadian soccer player Moïse Bombito on social media after he made a tackle on Lionel Messi during a 2-0 Copa America loss to Argentina on Thursday. The Canadian Soccer Association issued a statement on social media late Thursday night about the messages without mentioning Bombito by name. CONCACAF said it stood with Canada Soccer “in condemning the disgraceful social media posts.” Bombito, a 24-year-old from Montreal who plays for the Colorado Rapids in MLS, made an Instagram story post that didn’t reference anything specifically but said, “My beautiful Canada. No room for that bs.”
