The duel between England and Iran left one of the images of the tournament

The national team and the fans protested against the repression in the Iranian country

There are people who say that football and politics shouldn’t go hand in hand… But the reality is very different. The England-Iran preview was another rehearsal. In the moments when the Iranian anthem was played, The players decided not to sing and the fans booed the anthem.

The reason? The oppression of women that the Iranian country has witnessed in recent weeks. The World Cup in Qatar brought human rights abuses in certain countries to the table and the Iran national team wanted to use the occasion to speak their mind.

The fans have also come to the stadium to see their team holding banners with slogans such as “free women’s lives”.
