One Love armband surrender is seven national disgraces. FIFA must face a fight
Football365 says Firstly, fuck FIFA. Fuck Gianni Infantino, and fuck this godforsaken World Cup.
At least for those of us conflicted over whether we could enjoy watching tournament in good conscience, there was some solace to be taken from the fact that a reasonable number of the headline acts were prepared to take a stand against some of the issues that make this festival of fuck so conflicting.
Granted, nine players sporting a piece of coloured elastic is hardly the Stonewall riots but the prospect offered at least a modicum of solidarity with one of the groups marginalised by the hosts and organisers of this World Cup. After just one day, those people are again left wondering where their place is in a tournament that is shaping up to be even more disgusting and gratuitous than we feared.
