Red Devils have team photo taken in controversial shirt (and still make a modest statement)

‘One Love’ continues to stir emotions in Qatar. The Red Devils were told by FIFA that their colorful shirt in support of the One Love movement may no longer be used during the warm-up of their World Cup matches. So the Devils had a team photo taken in the forbidden shirt during training. A modest statement from the Devils.

The discussion about the One Love captaincy has already been settled. FIFA banned seven European countries, including Belgium, from using a captaincy in support of human rights in the broadest sense of the word. The authorities in strict religious Qatar could not accept support for a movement that, among other things, strives for equal rights for the LGBTQ community.

The interference went on and on. FIFA also banned the shirt with which the Red Devils wanted to warm up. After all, it contained the colors of the rainbow and was a direct support for the One Love movement.

The Devils promised to take action and did so today, albeit in a modest way. First they had a team photo taken in their official match shirt, followed by an identical image taken in the banned shirt.
