Iranian IMNA News Agency correspondent Ali Karimi commented on the fans' discontent during the Iranian national team players' singing the national anthem before their match against the United States (0-1) at the 2022 World Cup.
The players showed their fear and didn't sympathize with the people, so they were cursed by the Iranian people. It was the people's curse that drove the national team out of the World Cup. Football is not the priority of the Iranian people right now. Almost everyone in Iran is grieving because of the chaos and the daily killings of young people. If the voice of the Iranian people doesn't reach the world, this madness will continue.
