Will the France team face Danes wearing a black jersey in the 2nd match of Group D of the World Cup in Qatar on November 26? It would be a first for the team led by Christian Eriksen. The equipment manufacturer Hummel wanted to mark the occasion, this Wednesday, when disclosing the 3rd tunic of the Scandinavian selection.
On his Instagram account, the Danish equipment manufacturer surprised by offering a black jersey with the logo almost erased. A way of protesting against the host country and the conditions towards migrant workers who would be around 6,500 to have lost their lives on the construction sites of the World Cup stadiums since 2010. In addition to the national team, the Danish equipment manufacturer is under contract in particular with the English clubs of Southampton and Everton, the Portuguese club of Braga and the Spanish formations of Tenerife and Las Palmas.
“The color of mourning. The perfect color for Denmark’s third kit for this year’s World Cup. Although we support the Danish national team until the end, this should not be confused with support for a tournament which claimed the lives of thousands of people, the brand said in a statement. We would like to make a statement about Qatar’s human rights record and how it treats the migrant workers who built the World Cup stadiums there. »
