Iran - United States: World Cup in Qatar 2022, live | Extra-sports tension in the prolegomena

2022-11-29T19:15:33.202Z

The winner of the match is guaranteed their qualification to the round of 16, where they would meet the Netherlands or Senegal



Iran and the United States close their participation in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar on Tuesday with a high-voltage clash, not only because the pass to the round of 16 is at stake, but also because of the historic political rivalry between the two countries.

The Iranian team arrives at the meeting with four points, compared to the three of the United States, an advantage that could be decisive in favor of the Persian team in the event that the match ends in a draw and Wales does not beat England.

In the run-up to the match, tension has been the protagonist for reasons unrelated to football: the United States coach, Gregg Berhalter, apologized for the publication by the federation of his country of an altered flag of Iran in which it did not appear the emblem of the islamic republic.

The Iranian media even asked for the exclusion of the US World Cup for this reason.

Added to this crisis is the delicate internal situation in Iran due to the protests after the death of the young Mahsa Amini in police custody for wearing her veil incorrectly.

The Government of Iran has threatened the relatives of its national team in the World Cup with "imprisonment or torture" if the players of the selection "do not behave" properly in the match they are playing today against the United States, according to reported CNN.

Soccer World Cup

Difficult to separate politics from sport

Alejandro Gomez

“Sport is something that should bring people together.

The Olympic Games are an example of this;

the World Cup is something similar.

We are all brothers.

Sport does that”, said the pressured coach of the US team, Gregg Berhalter, trying to cool down a heated press conference, which even ended with discussions between representatives of the media from Iran and the United States.

And it's true: sport is a vehicle that generates health, discipline, mentality, union and brotherhood.

Even, for those who reach professionalism, even wealth.

But it can be used to send political messages, entertain and distract entire nations, or raise the voice in favor of vulnerable and attacked groups.

Iran, the impossible heroes of the World Cup

David Alvarez

The pressure already felt by the Iranian players, despised by their people, became more acute when they began their activity in Doha and English journalists appeared at their camp.

His questions placed the footballers daily in the face of demonstrating in public about the protests.

In their careful answers, they alluded to the discontent of the town: they also wanted them to be better, but they preferred to talk about soccer.

The press insisted, and one morning one of the Iranian envoys ostensibly began to photograph the small audience in the barracks.

Soccer World Cup

All those offended by Iran, against the US

David Alvarez

José Mourinho maintains that the games begin to be played the day before in the press room, and that was where tonight's Iran-USA began yesterday (20:00, World Goal).

It was started by Iranian journalists.

Arrives, as in the 1998 World Cup, "the mother of all parties."

When Carlos Queiroz, the coach, and striker Karim Ansarifard entered the conference room, part of the Iranian press greeted them with a minute of applause.

They were going to play the game together, something they have displayed since they arrived.

They have been complaining for days about the questions that Westerners have asked Queiroz and his soccer players about the protests in their country and the repression.

They say it is an unfair meddling, and on Monday they had prepared to fight back.
