RFU Honorary President Koloskov calls Germany’s allegations against FIFA president unfounded
MOSCOW, November 24 – RIA Novosti, Oleg Bogatov. Vyacheslav Koloskov, Honorary President of the Russian Football Union, told RIA Novosti that the German Football Association’s (DFB) allegations about the International Football Federation (FIFA) President Gianni Infantino are unfounded.
The Associated Press on Monday reported that the captains of the national teams of seven European countries have abandoned their plans to wear the One Love armband at World Cup matches in Qatar after FIFA warned that players would be penalized with a yellow card. FIFA later announced the transfer of the “No Discrimination” campaign, which includes wearing special captain armbands from World Cup quarter-finals to all matches of the tournament. These headbands have a heart similar to the One Love campaign, but do not remove the rainbow flag, the international symbol of the LGBT community.
According to Bild, the DFB is considering appealing the FIFA ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). DFB plans to allow Manuel Neuer to wear the One Love armband from the match against Spain in the second round of the group stage. On Wednesday, before ending in a 1-2 draw with Japan, German football players covered their mouths with a team photo in response to FIFA’s ban on wearing One Love headbands during matches to promote inclusivity.
“As far as I understand, there is non-alcoholic beer in the stadium, there are equipment, there are flags. Nothing prevents normal people from getting sick. In such grandiose events, we must look for advantages, not disadvantages. The country. So, this criticism of the British, Germans and others… You have to play,” he added. .
