    Iran lodges complaint against Bahrain over disrespecting national anthem

    This is truly atrocious. (video in link below)

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    National football teams of Iran and Bahrain held a match on Tuesday in the Matchday three of Group C of qualifiers for World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023. The match ended with a 1-0 victory for the host while Iranian players lost many chances and, as coach Marc Wilmot’s described it, were ‘punished’.

    However, the match started with a controversial move by Bahraini fans and even a weirder reaction by Bahraini players on the pitch. As soon as Iran’s national anthem was played, fans started booing and making a lot of noise while Bahraini players laughed at the fan's action as a sign of approval.

    Iranian football federation spokesman Amir Mahdi Alavi voiced deep regret over the issue, saying “Football Federation’s strong protest over this unmannerly behavior was filed and sent to the match supervisor and to the AFC and FIFA for further investigation.”

    Also, Iran's Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs, Masoud Soltanifar said that “Bahraini fans and players’ insult to our national anthem is a gross violation of the FIFA and International Olympic Committee regulations and will follow up the case in international bodies.”

    I'm obviously not supporting the Bahrainis for what they did, but we shouldn't be hypocrites and act as if other national teams are always welcomed and respected at Azadi. Example: Iran-Qatar three years ago. Watch from minute 21:00:

    On the other side, I hope the boys become even more motivated to beat them with a high number of goals when they play in Tehran next year. Also, let's hope that the stadium will be packed.

    What classless animals.
    I went to Sharif University. I'm a superior genetic mutation, an improvement on the existing mediocre stock.

    It reminds me of the time after a shooting incident where the crowd and Australian team were holding a moment of silence while the 8-0ers were dancing and prancing around on the field.

    I don't really see anything wrong with what their players did.... And the fans can boo all they want... What I am most disappointed about is that our players after listening to them boo our national anthem, weren't able to shut them up on the field... I am very very disappointed by that.

    We created enough chances to win this game. Anyways i think in Azadi we are going to smash them 4-0 or even 5-0.
