Rock the Casbah

The Iran football team and its supporters have taken the Green Wave protests with them to Seoul, South Korea, for today's World Cup qualifier.

Down on the pitch, a number of Iran players were spotted wearing green wristbands. They were reportedly forced to shed the colors during halftime.
