In a sign of support of mass demonstrations across Iran after 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died in custody while she was being detained by morality police for breaking the country’s strict Islamic dress code, Iranian players wore jackets to cover up the country's badge on their uniforms when they lined up before Tuesday's 1-1 friendly match with Senegal in Modling, Austria.
