FIFA World Cup: Belgium's foreign minister wears 'One Love' armband during the match

Belgian Foreign Minister Hadja Lahbib wore a 'One Love' armband when she met FIFA President Gianni Infantino during her country's World Cup match against Canada.

A picture of Lahbib surfaced on Wednesday in which he is wearing a colorful armband. This type of armband is considered a symbol of unity in diversity. World football's governing body FIFA banned the captains of seven European countries, including Belgium, from wearing such armbands. They wanted to wear it to condemn World Cup host Qatar's poor human rights record.

Lahbib posted a picture on Twitter in which he is wearing the armband on his left arm. FIFA warned seven of Europe's football federations that their players would be punished if they wore such armbands.
