Germany protests FIFA ban

Germany players protest FIFA ban on wearing armbands one love🇧🇷 The team covered their mouths in the official photo of the selection taken shortly before the duel against Japan, this Wednesday (23).

The goalkeeper and captain of the German national team, Manuel Neuer, entered with a sash, hidden under the sleeve of his shirt. After the start of the match, the German Federation spoke and confirmed that Neuer did not wear the One Love armband, explaining the reasons for the decision.

“We wanted to use our captain’s armband to take a stand on the values ​​we stand for in the Germany national team: diversity and mutual respect. Along with other nations, we wanted our voice to be heard,” says the official note.

“It wasn’t about making a political statement – ​​human rights are non-negotiable. This should be taken for granted, but it is not yet the case. That’s why this message is so important to us. Denying us the armband is the same as denying us our voice. We defend our position.” completed.

Seven European teams intended to use the armband one love, a movement created in Dutch football, in defense of human rights. At the Qatar Cup, it became a symbol mainly of demonstrations for the rights of migrant workers and the LGBTQIAP+ community.

However, FIFA decided that it would apply sporting punishments, with a yellow card, to captains who wore the armband and to the players involved. In addition, that would apply a financial penalty.
