On Tuesday, Iran’s national soccer team wore black jackets over their country’s emblem while Iran’s national anthem played, as a show of solidarity with protesters. The team was in Maria Enzersdorf, Austria to play Senegal in a World Cup tune-up match. (The match ended in a 1-1 draw.) The players stood with their arms around each other while the song played, and keep their jackets zipped up until the game started.
