PHOTOS: One of the assistant referees checks Manuel Neuer's kit, confirming he is wearing the FIFA-approved armband under his shirt

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that One of the assistant referees checks Manuel Neuer's kit, confirming he is wearing the FIFA-approved armband under his shirt.

"Denying us the armband is the same as denying us a voice. We stand by our position.

"We wanted to use our captain’s armband to take a stand for values that we hold in the Germany national team: diversity and mutual respect.

German players covered their mouths in a protest against the decision to not allow nations to wear the OneLove captain's armband at the World Cup.

The German national team took the strongest stance yet before their match against Japan, covering their mouths in their pre-team picture in protest of the decision. A referee could also be seen checking Manuel Neuer's armband to ensure he was wearing the one issued by FIFA. Nancy Faeser, Federal Minister of the Interior and Community of Germany, could be seen wearing the armband in the crowd.

WHAT THEY SAID: Germany released a Twitter thread explaining the gesture, which stated that they wanted to express values close to the German national team, and that FIFA not allowing them to do so was denying them a voice.

"It wasn’t about making a political statement – human rights are non-negotiable," they said regarding the armband. "That should be taken for granted, but it still isn’t the case. That’s why this message is so important to us. Denying us the armband is the same as denying us a voice. We stand by our position."
