Moscow, Jun 17 (AP) Mexican fans have chanted a homophobic slur at Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer during the World Cup game here today.

FIFA has repeatedly fined the Mexican football federation over the chant.

It rang out at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium in the 24th minute of Mexico's game against Germany with the score at 0-0.

Fans in Mexico use the chant to insult opposing goalkeepers as they take a goal kick.

Widely considered a slur, some argue there is no discriminatory intent.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport canceled two fines against Mexico in November, ruling the chant was "insulting" but not meant to offend, though it left other fines in force
