Spanish Football Team Members Allegedly Robbed in Brazil
Claim money stolen from rooms while team was in Recife

Brazilian police are investigating after Spanish national football team players were robbed at their hotel in the northern city of Recife, football officials said Thursday.

FIFA confirmed the investigation after Spanish media said players had money stolen from their rooms while in Recife for a Confederations Cup match against Uruguay on Sunday."We know that there was a police report and this was being dealt with by the relevant authorities," FIFA spokesman Pekka Odriozola said. "We have also been in touch with the team."

A spokeswoman for the Spanish team declined to discuss the incident, while police in Recife could not be reached for comment.
Six Spanish players, including Gerard Pique, reported that goods, including money, had been stolen from their rooms, according to Spanish daily newspaper Marca and the EFE news agency.

The players reportedly discovered their money was missing as they prepared to leave Recife on Monday after the 2-1 win over Uruguay the previous day.

Security has long been a major problem in Brazil, where knife- and gun-point muggings, carjackings and armed robberies continue to be facts of daily life.

i expected that to happened a long time before now,  right from the beginning of this tournament,,, it is brazil, i know it will surely happen,,, there are some notorious cities in brazil, where you can even lose your head to thieves and robbers  while walking on the street, in as much as you are confirmed to be a westerner,,,the spanish team and other teams should have made preparations for a better security, wherever they are staying or going to,,
