World Cup 2022: Ivan Barton directs Germany against Japan

+++ 12.46 p.m .:

Ivan Barton leads the game Germany against Japan.

The 31-year-old from El Salvador is the tournament's third youngest referee and a relatively unknown name in world football.

“Referees from South and Central America cannot be said at all.

But I think that he can quickly be overwhelmed due to the quality of the players.

Barton seems very gestural and will be super motivated due to his little experience," said former FIFA referee Babak Rafati in an interview with

Sportzbuzzer

"One Love" scandal: What happens when Neuer takes a chance?

Update from Wednesday, November 23, 10:10 a.m .:

FIFA has banned wearing the “One Love” bandage at the World Cup in Qatar.

But what would be the consequences if Manuel Neuer suddenly wore this captain's armband in the game against Japan?

In the last seconds of the World Cup broadcast: ZDF sends a strong signal against the DFB team

The match referee would alert the German national team captain to "wrong playing attire" before kick-off and ask Neuer to remove the armband.

Should the 36-year-old refuse, he would get a yellow card.

However, there can no longer be a dismissal, because a player cannot be penalized twice for the same offence.

One possibility would then be that the referee does not start the game as long as Neuer is wearing the bandage.

Then Germany would have automatically lost the game.

If he whistles the game even though Neuer is wearing the "One Love" armband on his arm, the referee could note it in his report.

Then there would be a subsequent punishment by FIFA, for example a point deduction.

However, the DFB and Hansi Flick have already stated that Neuer will not wear the bandage.

Flick also ruled out another action on Tuesday.

World Cup 2022: Habeck would still wear the "One Love" bandage

First report

: Qatar - Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck (Greens) would wear the "One Love" captain's armband at the World Cup in Qatar in place of DFB captain Manuel Neuer, despite the threatened FIFA sanctions.

"I would be interested to see what the referee does if someone comes around with the bandage," he said on the ZDF program

Markus Lanz.

"I would take a chance, it would be a moderate protest," the Economics Minister continued.

World Cup 2022: Habeck would wear "One Love" captain's armband despite the threat of sanctions

After all, it's a bandage and not an "elaborated" form of protest like the climate activists of the last generation.

Habeck said he remembered protests that had become iconic and changed something, like the kneeling of then-US football pro Colin Kaepernick in 2016 as a sign against racism.

After that there were broader protests against racism in sport.

The special thing is that unlike previous tournaments, the World Cup in Qatar is political and there is no longer any non-political sport.

"Then of course you also ask yourself how you would act in the situation." Although he cannot speak for others, it is clear what is obvious.
