This prohibition is like gagging our mouths; will not agree to violate human rights; Team Germany against FIFA
German players protest against FIFA’s stance against wearing One Love arm bands. The German players protested by covering their mouths during the photo shoot before the first World Cup match.
After the Iranian players protested without singing the national anthem, the Qatar World Cup has become the stage for yet another protest.
Just before the match Germany wrote on Twitter that no one has the right to violate human rights and everyone should have them equally.

The tweet says that this message and protest is important to them and that FIFA’s ban on wearing armbands is like a gag. Team Germany added that they will stand firm in their position.
German minister Nancy Feiser, who came to the stadium to watch the match, arrived at the stadium wearing an arm band. During the match, the armband worn by German captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was checked by the referee.
FIFA has yet to comment on the actions of the German players. Reports suggest that disciplinary action will be taken against the team.
