FIFA demand clarification on Iran football punishment

Some good news: It seems like FIFA is putting pressure on the Iranian government over their ban of 4 national team players for wearing wristbands reflecting their support for opposition presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.

FIFA wrote to the Iranian football federation on Wednesday to ask for answers over alleged punishments meted out to several of their players involved.

It has been reported that they had been told they would never play for their country again because of their stance.

A FIFA spokesperson told AFP on Wednesday that they had written a letter asking for more information. “We wrote a letter to the Iranian Federation to ask for some answers and clarification regarding the press reports over what happened to some of the Iranian players following the qualifier with South Korea on June 17,” the spokesperson said.

Let’s hope that pressure from FIFA will allow the 4 banned players to be reinstated to their positions in the Iranian national team.
