Human rights and soccer are not on the same track, and the controversial World Cup in Qatar is the best proof.

After covering their mouths, the German soccer players, in protest at not being able to wear the LGTBI armband, decomposed on the pitch of the Khalifa stadium, collapsing in front of the floodwaters in Japan, which had been absolutely dominated.


's arm

that was supposed to be wearing the bracelet was not in place when Asano advanced like a man possessed and blew up the goal and the group of Spain, which starts backwards.

Neuer had stopped two capital balls shortly before, with an iron fist, although in the second the rebound fell to

It was the tie, something unexpected in a game in which Germany had claimed and had commanded.

The only thing that had been missing was the sentence, despite

Hansi Flick

bringing together the best attackers in his eleven, with
