Is FIFA really investigating homophobia?

We have more doubts than our friends at AllOut, cosigners of the letter to FIFA to which Jérôme Valcke has now (more than two months later) replied, with regard to what this really means for any investigation of the lesbophobic behavior of Nigerian women's football club Eucharia Uche.

We quote:

"Thus, in the event the FIFA Disciplinary Committee considers having enough evidence to be in a position to open proceedings, it will not fail to do so with the assistance of the FIFA administration."

The request for evidence is odd, as clearly FIFA was aware of the accusations, since they responded (insufficiently) in the form of a social call by Tatjana Haenni, FIFA's head of women's competition.

We are keen to see what action is taken, and will keep our readers informed as soon as we have news.
