Iranian soccer team threatened?

In a World Cup qualifier in Seoul, South Korea (of all places) on Wednesday, the Iranian national soccer team wore green armbands and wristbands - the color of the Mousavi supporters (see picture). It was reported that they did so to support the protesters.

It has not been confirmed, however, whether the green bands worn by the soccer team were intended as a protest against the disputed election results, CNN reported.

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.
I would bet - no confirmation yet - that they were told at halftime that if they wanted to return to Tehran alive or to see their families again, the armbands and wristbands had better not be there when they come out for the second half.

Carl - I wouldn't be surprised the regime is using all the means at its disposal to make sure Iranians do what they are told.

What else could go wrong indeed

They got their point across very well.
