FIFA, world soccer’s governing body, announced instructions to referees to issue yellow cards on any team captains who did not wear an officially approved captain’s armband effectively banning the “OneLove” armbands.

The German team reacted to this restriction by  posing with their mouths covered.

The Daily Mail reports that German soccer fans are not impressed:

While Germany’s players looked to make a political statement off the pitch, fans have accused them of failing to make a statement on the pitch, as they fell to a shock 2-1 defeat by Japan soon after.

Many fans insist Hansi Flick’s men ‘deserved’ to lose for focusing ‘only on politics’, claiming they got ‘sidetracked’ in the process.

One fan wrote: ‘Germany deserved that for being so obsessed with rainbow armbands and politics.’

Another said: ‘Don’t get sidetracked by the ‘politics’ and just play your football. All these needless virtue signaling isn’t helping you win. Germany should’ve won this.’
