Players from England, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Wales want to send a sign of respect, tolerance and solidarity with the “One Love” captain’s armband. But nothing will come of it. FIFA bans the armband just before the match between England and Iran starts.

However, the players sent a clear signal in the first game on Monday afternoon, albeit from a different side than expected. As Iran’s national anthem plays, Iran’s spectators, players and staff remain silent. Instead, whistles blow, no one sings.
