Germany midfielder Leon Goretzka says the team supports the anti-racism gesture of taking a knee even though the players haven’t been doing it at the European Championship.

Goretzka says it’s quite clear that “we want to counter racism and homophobia with diversity. I think you can see that in the way it’s done.”

The Bayern Munich midfielder says goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been wearing a captain’s armband with the rainbow colors for Euro 2020 games and there are plans for Germany’s stadium to be lit in the colors “which I think is a great idea.”

Goretzka says “I’m just happy about it and happy about every signal that is sent.”
