On Thursday 14th June, among the events of the Football World Cup Russia 2018, there was homage paid by the Security Council to the sporting event, at which the First Deputy Permanent Representative, Job Obiang Esono Mbengono was present.
The representatives of member States that make up the main UN decision-making body, felt the spirit of the World Cup with a spectacular exhibition in the debating room, which surprised those present.
The UN General Secretary, Antonio Guterres, oversaw the event as the referee, overseeing fair play from the players.
That was the case of the United States and the republic of Equatorial Guinea, among others. Nikki Haley jogged in wearing the shirt of the USA team, and Job Obiang Esono Mbengono, First Deputy Permanent Representative of Equatorial Guinea, wore the kit of the Nzalang National team.
