Harsh criticism in Netherlands for the choice of the national team not to wear the OneLove armband after threats from FIFA. The Dutch captain, Virgil Van Dijk, intervened on the matter in an interview with NOS: "I play in a position where a yellow card doesn't help you. I'm a footballer and I want to play in this type of competition. There are people who say that We don't have a backbone, but it doesn't work like that: we just want to play football. I would have liked to wear that armband, but not at the cost of a yellow card."
