Why Kai Havertz and his German teammates covered their mouths before the start of the World Cup game

REVEALED: Why Kai Havertz and his German teammates covered their mouths before the start of the World Cup game.

Just before the start of Germany’s World Cup match against Japan, pictures of Kai Havertz and the rest of the team with their mouths covered surfaced.

The gesture was made in opposition to FIFA’s decision to prohibit national team captains from supporting the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community by donning the one-love armband.

In his pre-game presser on Tuesday, Germany coach Hansi Flick made a suggestion about a potential Die Manshaft protest.

In order to avoid penalties and possibly receiving a yellow card before the game even begins, all European countries competing in Qatar on Monday announced that their captains would not wear the “one love” armband.
