Face masks: New fashion trend on World Cup field? 

Does everyone remember the face masks we all wore during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic? At one point, the whole world was forced to wear these masks as a security measure against the deadly virus.

Imagine living in locked down China, sealed in your tiny apartment, watching the World Cup, and then you realize not a single person in Qatar is wearing a mask.  Once again, China has been left behind in history, trapped in the past. 

The players affected by these mask Josko Gvardiol, who is regarded as Croatia’s golden man, wore a black face mask similar to what Son Heung-Min wore after the South Korean’s eye socket injury. Gvardiol wore his mask in a match against Morocco and Canada.  

Alireza Beiranvand took part in today’s training session with a new face guard. 

The last player on the list is Ellyes Skhiri, from Tunisia. He wore a mask in Group D matches against Australia and Denmark. The FC Köln midfielder is recovering from a broken cheekbone sustained in late October.
