    MANY football fans are only just learning why Germany play in white. The country's flag is red, black and yellow, but their famous strip has little resemblance to those national colours. 3Germany have always worn a white-dominated kitCredit: Rex 3The white kit is nothing to do with the colours of the German flagCredit: Getty And the origin behind that stretches back more than 100 years. You have to rewind all the way to the 1800s to understand why their kit is predominantly white - to a time when the Prussian flag was flown. Prussia was a German state on the southeast coast of the Baltic Sea which stretched from France to the modern border of Russia. The region had a white flag with a cross near the centre - which was later changed to a black eagle. As a result, when German football was founded in 1899, the national team adopted the black eagle as their emblem and the white colour from the Prussian flag for their kit. And even when the state lost its political power during the Revolution of...
    ROBERTO MARTINEZ says Belgium have become victims of French dirty tricks aimed at destabilising their World Cup bid. Belgium laboured to victory over Canada and then suffered a shock 2-0 loss to Morocco that has left them needing to win their final group game against Croatia to progress. 1Roberto Martinez has slammed the French media over a story about the Belgium squadCredit: Getty And stories that emerged in the French media about a bust-up amongst the players have shaken the camp with Martinez believing they have been done because Belgium are a threat to holders France’s crown. Manager Martinez said: “A World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world and there are many World Cups getting played and you could see maybe a country like France did a very good job with a story that became the main topic of conversation in Belgium. “What is clear is whoever has come up with it has scored an own goal for Belgium.

    USA Women are set to receive $6.5million (£5.4million) for the men's side reaching the last 16 of the World Cup as part of the equal pay agreement that was forged earlier this year. The USMNT extended their stay in Qatar on Tuesday night after picking up a crucial 1-0 win over Iran, which saw them advance to the knockout stages of this year's World Cup. Progression to the last 16 has guaranteed U.S. Soccer an estimated $13million (£11million) in prize money, half of which will go to their women's team through the equal pay agreement. After sealing the landmark agreement earlier this year, USA became the first federation in history to split their World Cup prize money down the middle between their two main national teams, which they described as a 'truly historic moment'. That means USA Women will bank at least $6.5million after the men's team's success on Tuesday, having already earned $4.5million (£3.7million) for their participation in the group stage.

    Iran's World Cup squad may face retribution upon its return to the Islamic Republic after losing 1-0 to the US on Tuesday, ending their chances of progressing to the tournament's knockout stages.  'Given what we've seen from the Iranian regime … they've shown themselves to be brutal and there's no reason to believe they're going to suddenly become rational,' an ex-CIA covert operations officer told The New York Post, adding that the Iranian players are being put in an 'untenable situation'. Last week, Iran's starting XI against England stayed quiet before the start of the opening Group B match when the country's national anthem was being played. The silence from the players was a sign of protest over the murder of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who allegedly died from police brutality while being held in custody for not properly wearing a hijab in September. At least 451 people have been killed since demonstrations in Iran started, and well over 18,000 have been arrested, according to Human Rights Activists, an advocacy group following the demonstrations.  Families of Team Melli's playing and coaching...
    The USMNT were greeted to a hero's welcome upon their return to the team hotel in Qatar on Tuesday, as a group of fans - including Christian Pulisic - cheered them on as they walked in. Pulisic left the game at halftime after colliding with Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand immediately after scoring the game's decisive goal, and was later diagnosed with a pelvic contusion. But the matchwinner, who visited the hospital after his injury, was on hand to celebrate with his teammates after their crucial 1-0 win vs. Iran, as he giddily recorded the team's entrance on his phone and hugged Tim Weah. Sergino Dest can be seen in the clip delivering a peace sign to supporters, while Yunus Musah, Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams and Tim Ream were all smiles as well. Earlier in the day, the USMNT secured qualification to the round of 16 with a nail-biting victory over Iran, as Pulisic's 38th minute shot from close range was enough to get all three points. And the celebrations continued in a virtual sense after the game as well, as...

    Bloomberg columnist and editorial board member, Bobby Ghosh, told MSNBC on Tuesday that Iranians are “celebrating” America’s 1-0 World Cup victory over their country. Ghosh said he had heard reports from inside the country that many people are so unhappy with the government that they were gleeful to see their team lose to America. While on Deadline: White House, Ghosh told host Nicolle Wallace the game was a “geo-political matchup” as much as it was a soccer game. “There was a great deal of politics around this game, the Iranian regime is going through a very difficult time with Iranians protesting against their government back home,” he said. “Iranians also are in two minds about whether or not they should support their national team in Qatar at the World Cup.” Ghosh noted for the U.S. the game was essentially a win-or-go-home match. For Iran, he said, the stakes were higher: Remarkably, already I’m seeing reports out of Iran that Iranians are celebrating the American victory. That is something I would not in a million years have expected to see in...
    Iran's footballers sang the national anthem before their game against the United States at the World Cup, after being warned by officials in Tehran they face retribution for their 'insulting' decision not to sing it ahead of the match against England. An Iranian politician warned their could be punishment if they didn't start singing the anthem for their final two games, against England and the United States.  Medhi Chamran, the chairman of Tehran city council, warned that the country 'will never allow anyone to insult our anthem', reports The Guardian.  They sang the anthem before the Wales game but stood stony-faced as the anthem played at the Khalifa International Stadium last Monday ahead of their 6-2 World Cup defeat to England. It was viewed as a stand of solidarity with protests currently engulfing Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran's morality police on September 16. The 22-year-old died three days after her arrest in Tehran for allegedly breaching the Islamic dress code for women.  IRan's players sang their national anthem before the game against USA kicked off in...

    Brazil's defence, especially veteran Thiago Silva, has been highly praised after they kept a second consecutive clean sheet against Switzerland. The tournament favourites followed up their 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday with a 1-0 win over their Swiss rivals - and neither of the European sides were able to muster a shot on target against the Brazilians. As Opta reported after the game, it meant Brazil have become just the second nation to not face a single shot on target in their first two World Cup games in a single edition since 1966. It is a good omen for the country as well, because the feat was previously achieved by France in 1998, on their route to winning their home tournament.  0 - #Brazil ???????? have become in just the second nation to not face a single shot on target in their first two #WorldCup games in a single edition after France in 1998 (2 games) since 1966.

And they were at it again on Sunday following the loss. Costa Rica star Keysher Fuller curled into the top corner with nine minutes to go to secure a 1-0 win and all three points. The result flings Group E wide open ahead of Spain's clash with Germany this evening.

    WHEN I look at all the squads in Qatar, I struggle to find any to match England for attacking flair. And in Jack Grealish and Phil Foden, we’ve got two players who virtually every other national team in Qatar would look to build their team around. 2Foden was an unused substitute in England's 0-0 draw with the USACredit: Getty 2Grealish made an appearance off the benchCredit: Getty But two games in to the World Cup they have spent the combined total of an hour on the pitch and frankly that amazes me. If I could have one wish for Tuesday’s final group match against Wales, it would be to see the pair of them out there from the start. When you’ve effectively reached the last 16 with a game to spare it might seem a bit harsh to knock Gareth Southgate’s tactics. But I watched that 0-0 draw against the USA and it was crying out for someone to provide that bit of magic — someone to find that killer pass or inject a bit of life into things. Read...

    Football fans are revelling in Qatar's misery as the World Cup hosts became the first team to be eliminated from the group stage.  A 3-1 defeat to Senegal, coupled with Holland's 1-1 draw with Ecuador, means hosts Qatar became the first side dumped out of the competition, with zero points and just one goal from their opening two games. 'Qatar being the first ones eliminated and making history as the fastest hosting nation to be knocked out is funny. I'm not going to pretend it's not,' one Twitter user wrote.  Another described it as 'poetry in motion' to see Qatar, who have proven deeply unpopular hosts with fans, eliminated. They are just the second hosts, along with South Africa, to fall at the first hurdle in World Cup history.  Qatar have become just the second World Cup host nation to be eliminated at the group stage Ecuador's 1-1 draw with Holland on Friday ensured that Qatar lost any chance of the last-16 Social media was full of people 'glad' that Qatar had become the first team to be...

    A furious football fan has slammed organisers after arriving at their World Cup accommodation in Qatar to find it was still being built. Migrant workers who worked 14-hour shifts and slept on the ground were still completing cabins in the Al-Emadi fan village near Doha, that cost $330AUD a night, the Daily Mail revealed on Tuesday. A TikToker with more than 1.96million views gave fans an insight into the cramped, expensive cabins as they were left in a state of disbelief that the rooms were still being constructed as they arrived.  @fanvillageqatarr World cup feeling #worldcupqatar2022 #worldcupfanvillages #qatar2022 ♬ Hayya Hayya (Better Together) - Music from the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Official Soundtrack - Trinidad Cardona & Davido & Aisha Arriving at their cabin, the TikToker showed a huge amount of materials yet to be installed, rubbish and multiple people still working in the cabin, which was clearly unfinished.

    The German men's soccer team made a statement before their first World Cup match Wednesday by covering their mouths in the team photo. The gesture by the team appears to be a protest against FIFA, who threatened to penalize teams who wore a rainbow armband at the tournament in Qatar.

    Sceptic football fans have theorised that Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia on purpose to avoid facing Brazil until the final of the World Cup. The South Americans suffered one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history on Tuesday when they were beaten 2-1, a result which means they will now probably have to win both their remaining games to top their group. With Brazil expected to ease through Group G, it was expected they would face Argentina in the semi-finals if all went to plan, but, if Argentina come second in their group, they will fall on the opposite side of the draw. Several fans have suggested that Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia on purpose to avoid Brazil The Asian side beat Lionel Messi and co. 2-1 in one of the biggest World Cup shocks of all time Several Twitter users have put forward the idea that Lionel Messi and co. lost deliberately to avoid their rivals as they tasted defeat for the first time in 37 international matches.
