At the World Cup match against England the entire Iranian team stood grim-faced and silent during the playing of their country's anthem. It has been widely interpreted by the media as a protest against the regime that rules in Tehran.

Will this put the footballers in any jeopardy, for disrespecting the anthem when they eventually arrive home?

Equally there have been countless images of female Iranian supporters dressed in party-hats and looking every bit as casually turned out as any western women. In view of the recent severe, and brutal actions inside Iran against women dressed in a way considered inappropriate, does this portend trouble for them when they return?
