persona non grata: Rafa di Zeo in the middle of Boca Juniors supporters

La 12 is also known as Barra Bravas e di Zeo has not been allowed to go to a World Cup since 1990 in Italy. According to the story at La Liga he has been accused of the attempted murder of one of his ‘fellow supporters’ William Laluz Fernandes. The names of some Barra Bravas members have come up in a list of the most potentially dangerous people sent as Brazil’s request. The same request was sent to all the Mercosul countries. It shouldn’t really come as a surprise as member of the Barra Bravas were the only ‘official’ supporters expelled from South Africa World Cup.
