The cabinet will not send a minister to Qatar on Saturday for the eighth final match between the United States and the Netherlands. The Netherlands will have to go ahead with the tournament if the government is to consider the thorny issue again.
That match was less emotionally charged than the group match between host country Qatar and the Netherlands, which was announced by the Minister of Sports Connie Bright visited.
In the run-up to the match, Hilder had been surrounded for weeks by social and political debate over the question of what statement the Netherlands should make in the stands. This eventually became a hard-to-see pin in the OneLove campaign. Unlike the Belgian and German ministers who visited their country’s match, Helder did not wear a clearly visible OneLove campaign bracelet.
Quarter-finals or semi-finals
Helder chose dialogue with the Qatari government and trade unions to discuss human rights. If the Netherlands win the game on Saturday, it should be possible to extend them to the quarter-finals. So it is clear that Prime Minister Mark Rutte will come into the picture. In the semi-finals and/or finals, this could be the king.
