    Eden Hazard appeared critical of Germany's gesture ahead of their match with Japan, in which the starting XI covered their mouths after being prevented from wearing the 'OneLove' armband to denounce the threat of FIFA sanctions.  The Real Madrid forward claimed that the four-time World Cup winners might have made a better impact had they focused more on winning the game than making a statement in the game, according to RMC Sport.  Players had been warned against wearing OneLove armbands promoting inclusivity at a tournament held in a country with a questionable human rights record, and Hazard admitted he did not want to risk incurring an automatic yellow card.  'Yes, but afterwards they lost the match,' Hazard said, when asked for his thoughts on the gesture made by the German side on Wednesday.  'They would have done better not to do it and to win. We are here to play football, I am not here to send a political message.  'People are better placed for that. We want to be focused on football.'  Several European nations, including England and Wales,...

You don’t start accusing, fighting, insulting. You start engaging. We have heard many moral lessons from Europe and the western world.

    Germany's players placed their hands over their mouths during a team photo ahead of their game against Japan in a World Cup Group E match on Wednesday in protest. The action was taken after FIFA threatened sanctions against teams and their captains if they went ahead with their plan to wear the LGBTQ 'OneLove' armband. All German players took part in the gesture in front of dozens of photographers on the pitch in Doha, Qatar - where homosexuality is illegal - ahead of the kickoff. After the protest in the Khalifa Stadium, the German Football Association (DFB) released an statement emphatically supporting its team, saying: 'To ban the armband is like banning our right to speak.' Meanwhile, watching from the stands, Germany's Interior Minister Nancy Fraser wore the banned armband instead. She had disguised it underneath a pink blazer, which she took off as the game began - revealing the band and the heart-shaped logo.

    A Danish reporter refused to remove his 'OneLove' anti-discrimination armband ahead of his live TV report when a Qatari official ordered him to.  Jon Pagh, a journalist for Danish broadcaster TV2, stood in defiance against the official and refused to adhere to his order to remove the anti-discrimination and LGBT rights symbol from his arm.  Pagh was getting ready to do a TV report about Denmark's World Cup match against Tunisia when the Qatari official approached him and told him to remove the armband - but the Danish reporter refused. The armbands have been viewed as a symbolic protest against laws in World Cup host Qatar, where homosexuality is illegal.  Pagh's refusal to remove the rainbow-themed armband came days after another Danish journalist from TV2, Rasmus Tantholdt, was forced off-air after Qatari security staff threatened to destroy his camera if he did not stop filming.  Jon Pagh, a journalist for Danish broadcaster TV2, stood in defiance against the official and refused to adhere to his order to remove the anti-discrimination and LGBT rights symbol from his arm Pagh was about to start...
    American soccer reporter Grant Wahl claimed he was refused entry to a World Cup stadium in Qatar for wearing a rainbow shirt.  The World Cup in Qatar has faced criticism for 'sportswashing' due to the host nation's poor human rights record, in particular the treatment of the LGBTQ+ community.  In Qatar, male homosexuality is punishable by a prison sentence and same-sex marriages are not recognized by the government.  As recently as this month, a Qatar World Cup ambassador told a German TV broadcaster that homosexuality was 'damage to the mind', and it remains illegal to be gay in the conservative Muslim country.  Wahl was attending the USA's first game of the World Cup against Wales on Monday and wore a black t-shirt with a circle in the colors of the rainbow wrapping around a soccer ball on the front, in support of the LGBTQ+ community. He took to Twitter to claim that he was initially refused entry to the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan.  American soccer reporter Grant Wahl claimed he was refused entry to a World Cup...
    England's stars took the knee at the start of their World Cup campaign - hours after being banned from wearing LGBT rainbow armbands. Captain Harry Kane led the gesture moments before the 1pm kick-off against Iran in Qatar.  It is shaping up to be one of the most political World Cups in memory, with a series of controversies already dogging the competition.  The Three Lions were denied a clear penalty just three minutes into the game, when Harry Maguire was clearly dragged down in the box. Maguire then headed against the crossbar. Thousands of Three Lions supporters are in the Khalifa Stadium in Doha including the WAGs of the players and David Beckham while millions are watching at home, work or in pubs with high streets across the UK deserted as people settled down for the 1pm match.  England took the knee as they started their first World Cup campaign against Iran in one of the most politically-charged matches in English football history after a row over wearing a rainbow captain's armband for Harry Kane, which was dropped after pressure from FIFA.  Harry...
