Mexico vs. Poland live updates and World Cup scores

Football fans wearing the rainbow, a symbol of LGBTQ inclusivity, said they were refused entry to World Cup stadiums and faced members of the public to remove the emblem, despite assurances from football’s governing body FIFA that visitors would be allowed to express their identity at the tournament in Qatar.

Stadium security and members of the public have asked American and Welsh fans to hide the rainbow-themed items from public view, fans said, in official areas and on the underground . In some cases, fans said they were refused entry to matches unless they removed rainbow-themed emblems, although others reported they had been able to take the rainbow symbol to the stadiums without any problem.
