Mike Baker, a former CIA covert operations officer, said the Iranian players are stuck in an “untenable position” after their much-hyped match against the United States, which defeated Iran 1-0 to advance to the knockout round of 16. “Given what we’ve seen from the Iranian regime … they’ve shown themselves to be brutal and there’s no reason to believe they’re going to suddenly become rational,” Baker said.

Young Iranians are at the head of this wave of protests in progress since the death in detention on September 16 of Mahsa Amini , a young 22-year-old Kurdish woman arrested three days earlier by the moral police for non-compliance with dress code imposed on women.

Because they are on the front line, the students undergo a lot of pressure but intend to continue their movement, confides one of them, who agreed to testify anonymously, by phone from Tehran.

"The students form a very important part of this revolution, we can even say that the demonstrations are part of the universities," he continues. "Even if security has been extremely strengthened in universities, it failed to calm the students."
