Norway and Germany already made statements to express their displeasure at the situation in Qatar, the country where the World Cup of 2022 will be held. Saturday night it was up to Orange to enter the field in a black shirt with the text ‘Football Supports Change‘ and the Danes did the same Sunday. They went with it on the team photo, too.
Through the official channels, the Danish Football Association shows that the shirt “the team’s desire for change for migrant workers in Qatar”. In addition, the shirts are signed and decided to offer them for sale later, after which the proceeds will benefit the migrant workers and their family members.
