The German national team also campaigned for human rights in the second World Cup qualifier with a jersey campaign. In Bucharest, the DFB kickers presented themselves on Sunday evening before the match against Romania (1-0) (the highlights in the video) with jerseys worn the wrong way round. A gesture that needed explanation.
The jersey numbers shown in front should represent the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and, like the message “Human Rights” on Thursday in Duisburg, aim at the human rights situation in the World Cup host country Qatar.
For many viewers, the content of the message could only be understood in connection with a tweet from the DFB with the words “We for 30!” and the hashtag “#HUMANRIGHTS” was provided.
“We stand for these 30 articles, we wanted to make that clear again,” said goalkeeper Manuel Neuer after the victory of the German team on the RTL microphone. “We are against discrimination and for tolerance and diversity.”
