FIFA will not take disciplinary action against the German national team following the player’s decision to cover their mouths during their pre-game photo before squaring off against Japan on Wednesday afternoon.

The Germany team, after being told they could not wear an LGBTQ ‘One Love’ armband, opted to cover their mouths, presumably as a way of alluding to feeling silenced by FIFA.
