Gareth Southgate: England to resume taking a knee in World Cup opener

Gareth southgate: england to resume taking a knee in world cup opener

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Gareth Southgate: England to resume taking a knee in World Cup opener” – below is their description.

Gareth Southgate has confirmed England will take the knee ahead of their World Cup opener against Iran on Monday.

Players discussed the matter on the eve of the Group B clash at Khalifa International Stadium and have decided to continue with the statement against racism having made the gesture at the European Championships last year when they made the final.

England players did not take the knee before September’s Nations League games against Italy and Germany, but did so during their fixtures in the summer against the same opposition, as well as two games against Hungary.

In the Premier League, players taking the knee has been limited to big matches rather than at the start of every match, which was decided by players in 2020 following the murder of George Floyd.

In This Story: Iran

Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
