FIFA has already made it clear to Germany and England that Manuel Neuer and Harry Kane, who intend to wear captain's armbands with the colors of pride in the World Cup games, will be punished if they do so. But do the Qataris enjoy special rights? Last night (Sunday) it was reported in the Arab media that Hassan Al Haydos, the captain of the Qatar national team, took a photo before the opening match against Ecuador, with a ribbon with the flag of Palestine painted on it.

During the game Al Haydos wore the special ribbon provided to him by FIFA, without any political messages or symbols, but according to reports, before the match he displayed the special ribbon designed to "express Support for the Palestinian people, in the eyes of the whole world."

As a reminder, the FIFA regulations state that the players are required to appear for games dressed in the official equipment provided to them, and those who deviate from the directive may receive an immediate punishment. According to "Bild", in Germany they fear that if Neuer goes onto the field with a tape that he took independently, FIFA will not You will only be satisfied with a monetary fine, but also give him a yellow card even before the start of Germany's first game, against Japan.

In the coming days, the German association will hold consultations with senior officials in FIFA and with officials in the England national team, where Harry Kane is considering a step similar to Neuer's, before deciding how to proceed. It will be interesting to see if Qatar will "win" this time, as in the issue of alcohol on the pitches.
