Oliver Bierhoff, team director of Germany, also commented on FIFA's decision to threaten sanctions in case of wearing the rainbow captain's armband, in support of the LGBTQIA+ community, in matches of the Qatar 2022 World Cup: "FIFA's behavior is frustrating even for us, and this escalation means that it goes beyond sport. We are very annoyed, before a game you have to think about the game: there seems to be a censorship, you can ban the armband but our values remain. For some it is a difficult situation, we are went to sleep thinking they could wear the armband and then this morning the president's communication arrived".
