Unlike the debut at the Qatar 2022 World Cup against England, today, before the match against Wales, Iran’s players sang the national anthem: the cameras that frame them all show them ‘murmuring’ with their mouths half open the words of the hymn. Iranian fans in the stands cheer and sing along
A rainbow “spot” at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Ar-Rayyan, the first clearly visible in the stands of the Qatar 2022 World Cup: some Welsh fans, who are watching the match against Iran, are wearing in addition to the traditional red shirt of the national team, multicolored caps. Yesterday Fifa instructed all stadiums to accept the use of rainbow hats and umbrellas by supporters, just after the Welsh Football Association had asked the confederation for clarification. Hats with the colors of the LGBTQ community had been confiscated from his fans before the match against the USA.
