A version of the Serbian flag with a map including Kosovo as part of the country was hung in the dressing room before they lost 2-0 to Brazil in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

The photograph was taken in Serbia’s dressing room before they lost 2-0 to Brazil. It showed, hanging from two player lockers, a version of the Serbian flag with a map including Kosovo as part of the country and stamped with the slogan “there will be no surrender".

The KosovoSportsMinister on Friday protested after photos showed the Serbia team hung a flag in their changing room at theWorldCup reclaiming his country.

Hajrulla Ceku tweeted his anger at “disgraceful images from Serbia locker room, displaying hateful, xenophobic and genocidal messages towards Kosova, while exploiting FIFA World Cup platform".
