After running across the pitch for around 30 seconds, the young man was intercepted by security guards and calmly escorted by security out of the Lusail stadium, where the final will be played on December 18.

The scene was shown only fleetingly on television images.

No information on this man was immediately available.

The organizers of the Mondial-2022 are the target of many criticisms, in particular on the rights of LGBT + people.

Homosexuality is subject to criminal prosecution in Qatar.

The man had a T-shirt stamped with the logo of Superman with, on the front, an inscription in support of Ukraine ("Save Ukraine", "Save Ukraine") and on the back a message asking for respect for Iranian women ("Respect for Iranian Woman").

If FIFA assured that flags or clothes in the colors of the rainbow would be accepted in the stadiums, in fact, these were confiscated on several occasions by the security forces.

armbands in the stands

Seven European selections had said they intended to have their captain wear a "One Love" rainbow armband but finally gave up, Fifa having threatened them with sporting sanctions.

Britain's Sports Minister Stuart Andrew announced he would wear it on Tuesday against England-Wales, two of seven selections who waived.

The English fan group "3LionsPride", which represents LGBT+ supporters, decided before this World Cup that its members would not travel to Qatar.

"These matches should be a celebration for all the fans, but unfortunately a lot of them feel that's not the case. It's not a tournament for them. They felt they couldn't to be part of it and it is not acceptable", regretted Stuart Andrew.

It will not be a first at the World Cup as German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser, in charge of sports, wore it next to Fifa President Gianni Infantino during Germany's 2-1 defeat against Japan last Wednesday.

The Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hadja Lahbib, did the same during the victory of the Red Devils against Canada in Qatar (2-1).
