0 FIFA give vuvuzela green light for World Cup

FIFA-vuvuzela- World-CupSouth Africa football fans have been given a go ahead to use vuvuzela in the next football World Cup tournament. FIFA decision came after complaints from football commentators and players about the noise.

Vuvuzela is a plastic trumpet, coloured with South Africa flag colours, used by Bafana bafana fans in Confederation Cup finals which took place in South Africa as pilot for World Cup preparation programmes. The instrument were given for free to football fans in Confederation Cup finals.
Quotes
Hans Klaus, director of communications at FIFA:
"That would mean one would have to take away the cow bells from Swiss fans and ban English fans from singing," "We approach this in a relaxed manner. I am convinced the vuvuzelas will be a hit at the World Cup. It will be a World Cup with African sound."
Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso:
"I think they should be banned. They make it very difficult for the players to communicate with each other and to concentrate," he said.
What do you thing about FIFA decision?
