Iran vs South Korea: Iran national football team players join election protest
Members of Iran's national football team wore green arm and wrist bands Wednesday during their World Cup qualifying match against South Korea. The game ended 1-1.
According to CNN, the bands are seen as a sign of support for Iranian reformist leader Mir Hossein Moussavi. Green is the campaign color of Moussavi, who came second in last week's presidential election.
The players took the wrist bands off when the team came out for the second half of the game that was taking place in Seoul. According to some sources, the head of Iran's football federation called to the head of the Iranian delegation in Seoul and ordered him to take the bands off the players' shirts.
