The 27-year-old forward has posted several messages of support on social media for the protests in Iran sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. Hundreds have died in the unrest.

Azmoun’s Instagram account, which has five million followers, was at one point blocked for several days before he came back online. Activists have called on fans watching Iran’s matches at the World Cup to chant Amini’s name.

Iran will also face Wales on November 25 and the USA on November 29 in the group stage of the World Cup.
