Before the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, various complaints were made public against the organization and the host country for not respecting human rights. One of the teams that emphatically claimed was Germany. Although FIFA prohibited wearing the bracelet that supports the LGTB + community, those led by Hansi Flick decided to make a gesture of rejection prior to their debut against Japan.
Given what happened, one of those who dared to comment was Eden Hazard. The captain of the Belgium team showed his discomfort when addressing these issues and considered that the most important thing in the competition was the sporting factor. When asked about the protest by the Germans, the Real Madrid winger issued some controversial statements.
“Yes, but then they lost the game. They would have done better not to and win. We are here to play football, I am not here to send a political message. We want to be focused on football.” He stated in dialogue with RMC Sports.
It should be noted that the Belgian squad was one of those who opposed FIFA’s prohibitions on the use of ‘One love’. England, Wales, Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland they also criticized this provision.
After the victory against Canada, Belgium has been concentrating with a view to the commitment against Morocco for the second day of group F. The confrontation between Europeans and Africans will be held this Sunday, November 27, starting at 8:00 a.m.
