Four Iranian soccer players "retired"

Last week, six Iranian soccer players wore green armbands during a match to show solidarity with the crowds of Iranians disputing the clearly rigged election.

According to the pro-government newspaper, Iran, Ali Karimi, 31, Mehdi Mahdavikia, 32, Hosein Ka’abi, 24 and Vahid Hashemian, 32 – have been “retired” from the sport after their gesture in last week's soccer game against South Korea in Seoul.

The four have been banned for life.

A total of six Iranian players wore the green armbands during the game, but I have not seen any information on what, if anything, will be done to the remaining two players. My guess is, they're probably too valuable to the team to punish for political reasons.
