This is believed to be an action in response to the German team covering their mouths when taking pictures before the opening match against Japan on November 23, in protest because FIFA threatened to give a yellow card if the captains used the “One Love” armband. The armband is a symbol to show support for diversity, without discrimination, especially for the LGBTQ community.
The Islamic State of Qatar considers LGBTQ illegal, does not recognize same-sex marriage and does not allow LGBTQ rights advocacy.
Many fans quickly shared with Vn88 mobile about their frustration at this action of the German team, saying that they deserved to lose the match against Japan because they were “too focused on politics” and went too far.
Mesut Ozil, a German born Turkish national, has left the German national team after saying he was targeted by racism and blamed for Germany’s defeat at the 2018 World Cup.
The segregation began before the 2018 World Cup, when Ozil and his Turkish-German team-mate Ilkay Gungogan posed for a photo with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. They were then mocked by German fans during a warm-up match before the World Cup.
This has prompted sports newspapers such as Vn88cx to raise questions about how the German Football Federation (DFB), German fans and media treat people of Turkish origin. “I was German when we won, but an immigrant when we lost,” Ozil said at the time the “tank” failed to make it through to the group stage four years ago.
After the tournament in Russia, the wave of discrimination directed at Ozil was increased by statements from German national team director Oliver Bierhoff and Reinhard Grindel, DFB President at the time. Ozil said he was blamed by them for the team’s poor performance.
Mr Grindel then said he should have given more support to Ozil, who retired from the German national team after the 2018 World Cup.
Speaking to Vn88 sportday after the 1-1 draw with Spain this morning, Gundogan said he now just wants to focus on football.
“Honestly, for me, politics is over now,” Gundogan said. “Qatar is very proud to be the first Muslim country to host the World Cup. I also come from a Muslim family. The Muslim community is proud of this. Everything now revolves around football.”
First, according to some studies, exercise increases the amount of protein secreted into saliva, especially a mucus called MUC5B, which makes saliva thicker and harder to swallow.
“The proteins in the saliva can be the cause of the autonomic nervous system and the auto-immune nervous system,” Dr. Nandlal Pathak, quickly shared with Vn88.cx about the treatment course. and Synchronous Orthography, said.
When the saliva thickens, the players are forced to spit it out, Dr. Udited Kapoord, senior consultant at Asia Hospital, added.
This is also why football, cricket and rugby players are allowed to spit on the ground, while tennis and basketball players are penalized for doing so.
Scientists quickly responded to the daily Vn88 news about the unknown reason why sports athletes produce a lot of MUC5B while training and competing. Some people claim that they breathe through their mouth more, this mucus prevents the mouth from drying out.
Another cause of footballers spitting is dehydration from mouth breathing. Normally, sweating in general can cause dehydration, causing saliva to thicken. If the amount of saliva is too much, the player is forced to spit it out.
According to experts, this tricks the body, especially the brain, that the athlete is actually consuming carbohydrates, stimulating the body to produce energy and act as if it were loaded with carbohydrates.
