The FIFA World Cup 2022 has begun and has got everyone excited. Ahead of the opening game of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, Iran players did not sing their national anthem before their match with team England. It was a gesture to stand in solidarity with the anti-government protesters in their homeland.
