It is obviously worrying, but the best people to comment on it are the Iranian people.
“I don’t know if they’ll do anything, ” Iranian football fan Payam, who didn’t give his surname for safety reasons, tells CNN Sport. “We are all hoping they do something…If they don’t, it’s going to be a big egg on their face, to be honest. ” Defender Ehsan Hajsafi became the first member of the national team to speak out at the World Cup in apparent support of anti-government protests at home. “They should know that we are with them.

And we support them. And we sympathize with them regarding the conditions, ” he told reporters, per Reuters, on Sunday. CNN has reached out for comment to FIFA regarding its stance on potential player protests but, at the time of publication, had not yet received a response. Former player Ali Daei, a soccer great in Iran, has publicly supported the protestors, with Daei refusing to attend the World Cup in solidarity with protestors. Meanwhile, beach soccer player Saeed Piramoon imitated cutting his hair, signaling his support for the protesters, after he scored the winning goal in the final of the Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup while his team was seen not singing the Iranian national anthem before the match.

” CNN has also reached out to the Welsh FA and US Soccer, teams also in Iran’s group, but, at the time of publication, had yet to receive a response. In the wake of the protests and the human rights violations happening in Iran, several groups inside and outside the country have called upon FIFA to ban it from the World Cup. In October, a group of prominent Iranian athletes lobbied FIFA via a law firm, urging it to suspend the Iranian Football Federation (FFIRI) and ban it from participating at the World Cup. “Iran’s brutality and belligerence towards its own people has reached a tipping point, demanding an unequivocal and firm disassociation from the footballing and sports world, ” a press release issued alongside the letter reads. They were joined in this stance by a human rights group, ‘Open Stadiums, ’ which describes itself as “a movement of Iranian women seeking to end discrimination” and allow women to attend football stadiums. “The Iranian FA is not only an accomplice of the crimes of the regime, it is a direct threat to the security of female fans in Iran and wherever our national team plays in the world, ” the group wrote in an open letter to FIFA in September.
When the FIFA World Cup Twitter account posted images of the Iranian players smiling and goofing around in a pre-tournament photoshoot, it prompted criticism by some on social media. “I am so disappointed, so heartbroken by these, ” Iranian-born football journalist Sina Saemian tweeted. “The lack of common sense, lack of empathy and insensitivity shown in these pictures is genuinely disheartening. The photo op is absolutely FIFA’s requirement, but the poses are not. There is a clear absence of any sense of awareness.
” Although its star forward, Azmoun, has shown his support for the protestors, Namazi says that many of the other national team players have remained relatively quiet, “leaving a bad taste. ” “The perception has really changed about the players, the national team itself, ” he adds. “People call it the national team of the Islamic Republic and not the national team of the people of Iran. ” Azmoun, who plays for the German team Bayer Leverkusen, posted multiple times to social media, and changed his profile picture to black in support of the protesters, and indicated that it could have cost him a place in the World Cup squad.
