Germany’s national team contested FIFA’s ban on pro-LGBTQ+ gestures at the Qatar World Cup in their first match of the tournament.

The team posed covering their mouths before facing Japan, who they lost to 2-1. The German side confirmed that this was in opposition to FIFA’s announcement that they will sanction teams wearing ‘One Love’ armbands, intending to show support for LGBTQ+ communities. “We wanted to use our captain’s armband to take a stand for values that we hold in the Germany national team: diversity and mutual respect.

Together with other nations, we wanted our voice to be heard,” stated the side’s official Twitter page. “Denying us the armband is the same as denying us a voice.
