The NY Post says the players on Iran’s soccer team may be jailed for losing to the United States in the World Cup. Former CIA operations officer Mike Baker says “Now, the Iranian team could face fines or even arrest in the wake of Tuesday’s defeat once they arrive home. It is retaliation for their disloyalty and their failure to beat the enemy.”

Neither is good if you’re an Iranian player upon returning home. The Iranian players could possibly defect to other nations. That isn’t likely because you would leave relatives behind. You’re putting your family and friends at risk when you do that. I wouldn’t be surprised if a number of the players have been thinking about it though.
