Germany have become the latest national team to protest against World Cup hosts Qatar’s human rights record.
Germany players wore black t-shirts with one letter on them each that spelled out “Human rights”.
The players wore the shirts ahead of their 3-0 win over Iceland in a World Cup qualification game on March 25.
A recent report claimed that 6,500 migrant workers have died in Qatar since the World Cup was awarded in 2010.
Norway players had previously worn T-shirts with the message "Human rights on and off the pitch" in protest of Qatar.
FIFA has confirmed that Norway will face no disciplinary action for their human rights protest on March 24.
FIFA believes in the freedom of speech, and in the power of football as a force for good, FIFA.
