Proposed deletion of 2002 FIFA World Cup controversies[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article 2002 FIFA World Cup controversies has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not notable on its own. If properly sourced it could be included with 2002 FIFA World Cup but as a standalone article it's wholly negative and unbalanced.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
