New Delhi, Nov 29 (ANI): Iran has no rule to sing the national anthem during match, Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting President Peyman Jebelli on November 29 said after players refused to sing their national anthem before their opening match against England. "Iran has no problem with our football team players refusing to sing the national anthem during a FIFA match in Doha. We don't have certain rules in Iran. People show respect by standing only during the national anthem," Peyman Jebelli said. “All Iranians are free to express their opinions about different events in Iran or outside Iran but I don't think that Iranian players refusing to sing the national anthem was a sign of supporting the anti-hijab protest,” he added.
