Today a controversial decision in our country: the Ministry of Defense has confirmed that tomorrow from 10 in the morning, the Army will begin to vaccinate to all the members of the Spanish soccer team, which will begin its journey in this European Championship from Monday at 9:00 p.m. against Sweden.
Controversial because, in the end, there many millions of people in Spain that they have not received yet your first dose. There are people who may think that this concession is a privilege to a group of elite athletes. A respectable opinion, but what I do not share.
Like it or not football is an establishment impregnated in our society. Complain about the fact that a group of people receive the vaccine against a disease that has plagued the world during the last 16 months does not seem a very commendable attitude, no matter how many arguments are had It was not their turn or if they are only 11 gentlemen kicking a ball.
There are more arguments in favor of going to vaccinate our selection with preference. At the end of the day, events like the Eurocup are those that they paralyze an entire country. I say it because I have lived it in the first person, with the penalty shootout against Italy in 2008 or the 2010 World Cup itself with Iniesta’s goal. Ultimately, you are not vaccinating just any group of athletes.
Some men are being vaccinated for whom there are several times in the past for whom many people in this country has been excited. If they are not vaccinated and they can’t play the tournament because of a bud, goodbye Eurocup. Sincerely, I don’t think that’s nice for many millions of people in this country.
It is foolish to deny that in this country football is an event of general interest. There are people who will not like it, yes. But I don’t think that so many people are harmed for vaccinating the members of our national team. I think it comes out gaining so much more than you can lose. Therefore, the Government get it right when vaccinating our selection.
