World Cup: It’s shocking – Belgium responds to FIFA’s ban on Qatar

FIFA announced the ban for Belgium.

FIFA has banned the European nation from wearing a vibrant warm-up shirt for the World Cup in Qatar.

Belgium will play its first match in the World Cup against Canada on Wednesday, after which it will face Morocco, before playing a confrontation with Croatia in its last match in Group Six.

But now they have had to make some last-minute adjustments at the behest of FIFA.

Belgium captain Eden Hazard has also been banned from wearing the OneLove captain’s armband.

Harry Kane of England, Gareth Bale of Wales and Virgil van Dijk of the Netherlands were all set to wear the OneLove armband on Monday until FIFA intervened and failed to provide assurances that the captains would not receive a yellow card or possible suspension for the gesture.

Belgium will also not wear their white shirt with the word “Love” on the inside of the collar even though the word is not visible to fans.

The reason for the change is that the Belgium sets are inspired by the fireworks of Belgium’s famous music festival Tomorrowland, which aims to promote diversity, equality and inclusion.

“All countries are at a loss,” Peter Bossart, president of the Belgian Football Association, told reporters.

“FIFA’s cruelty is appalling. We need to critically analyze our relationship.”
