Might be better to have female refs and female Lines man/women/ which may actually have a bigger impact.

If the Iranian team wish to withdraw then that would be up to them. It would also be a good show for the rest of the world too.

The event is called the "Wold Cup FINALS". Every country that adheres to the FIFA principles and rules can participate in the Wold Cup, but only countries that qualify in the finals will participate in the finals (should be obvious but it obviously isn't).

Why not boycott the World Cup then? I hardly think foreign laborers and women are treated any better in any part of the Arabian peninsula. Don't tell me, Qatar has oil too.
