World Cup

Eden Hazard criticizes Germany for their World Cup protest, saying, “We’re here to play football.”

Before their World Cup opener against JapanGermany protested by covering their mouths with their hands, according to Belgium captain Eden Hazard.
Threats of sanctions caused the four-time champions to decide against donning the “OneLove” armband, and the players reacted by covering their mouths in the team photo before the game.
The Samurai Blue of Japan will ultimately defeat the Germans 2-1 in the match.
In light of Qatar’s anti-homosexuality laws, other nations like England, Wales, and the Netherlands were also planning to wear the armband to show support for the LGBTQ+ community, but they also decided against it.
Hazard poked fun at the Germans and emphasized their defeat.
“They would have done better not to do it and to win,” he said. “We are here to play football, I am not here to send a political message, people are better placed for that. We want to be focused on football.”

On the subject of the ‘One Love’ armband, the 31-year-old added: “I’m not comfortable talking about it because I’m here to play football.

“I didn’t want to start the match with a yellow card,” he explained of the consequence of wearing the armband. “It would have been annoying for the rest of the tournament. To do it again, maybe I will postpone it.”

Michy Batshuayi scored the game-winning goal for Belgium against Canada on Wednesday night to give his team 1-0 victory.
