Among the reports were incidents of Welsh FA staff and fans being confronted by security for bringing hats to Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium and an American fan with a rainbow flag being confronted on the metro.

Plastic swords

The Times reports that English fans have been told not to dress as Saint George, the patron saint of England, who is depicted as a “knight crusader” with mock chain mail and, less often, a plastic sword.

The Crusades were a series of bloody religious wars in which Christian invaders, under the direction of the Latin Church, attempted to reclaim Jerusalem and the surrounding region from Muslim rule. Estimates of the death toll vary widely from 1.5 million to as many as 6 million. FIFA said: “Crusader fashion in the Arab context can be offensive to Muslims. That is why the anti-discrimination colleagues asked fans to wear things inside out or change their clothes.”
