Instead of the Rewe logo, the "One Love" sign will now be visible in all official places.

World Cup 2022: Iran sings the national anthem – fans burst into tears

Update from Friday, November 25, 11:15 a.m .:

The Iranian team, who did not sing the national anthem before the game against England and thus protested against the regime in Iran, now sang against Wales.

The fans in the stands acknowledged this with a shrill whistle concert, but there was also cheering.

In addition, numerous fans in tears could also be seen in the stands.

First report:

Qatar – Surprising turnaround at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Previously, FIFA did not allow rainbow-colored clothing or items inside stadiums, but that appears to have changed.

Fans who document their support for the LGBTQ+ community at the World Cup games should no longer be bothered by security personnel.

It was different in the first days of the World Cup.

Outside stadiums, people were asked to remove or cover up rainbow-colored clothing.

World Cup 2022: FIFA allows rainbow colors

Before matchday 2 of the group stage, FIFA received a request from World Cup participants Wales to allow their fans to wear rainbow hats and flags in the stadium for the match against Iran.

The world governing body replied on Twitter that there were no fears of sanctions and that fans were allowed to take rainbow-colored hats and flags into the arena.

Hansi, these three players have to go against Spain

Welsh fans got into trouble entering the stadium at the start of the World Cup for wearing rainbow hats.

These were taken from female supporters ahead of their team's 1-1 draw with the USA at Al-Rajjan's Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.

The traditional headgear called buckets had fans made with colored stripes as a sign of solidarity with the LGBTQI+ community.

Other fans, including a German supporter, also had trouble with stadium staff over paraphernalia in rainbow colors at this World Cup.

World Cup 2022: Welsh Football Association criticized FIFA

The Welsh Football Association immediately criticized the incidents: "We remain convinced that football is for EVERYONE." In the remaining games of the World Cup in Qatar, numerous flags, hats and clothing in rainbow colors will certainly be seen - not only with the Welsh fans.

The reason why FIFA suddenly changed their mind and lifted the ban is not known.

Meanwhile, the German team is struggling with itself after the World Cup defeat against Japan and must find solutions quickly.

Because on Sunday (November 27) against Spain, only a win really helps.
