Behold… an Iranian player shows solidarity with Iranian protesters during an international tournament

The Iranian Football Federation has vowed to deal with the beach soccer player who protested this week during the Emirates International Beach Soccer Championship in Dubai.

Player Saeed Bayramoun represented cutting his hair, a move that sent a signal of support to protesters in Iran for greater freedom for women.
