Victory against the bottom of the Bundesliga club keeps Dortmund’s slim title hopes alive, but it was Sancho’s performance and his personal protests on Floyd’s death that proved the main talking point.

Dortmund took a 1-0 lead through Thorgan Hazard when Sancho scored his first goal since the Bundesliga restarted, quickly releasing his team’s shirt to reveal the message, which earned him a yellow card from the referee.

His teammate Achraf Hakimi also pulled his shirt off to display the shirt with the same words after Dortmund’s fourth goal.

They joined other Bundesliga stars protesting the death of Floyd, 46, who died in Minneapolis during the arrest by a police officer, who pinned him to the ground for several minutes kneeling at his neck.

Earlier Sunday, French striker Marcus Thuram scored twice in Borussia Moenchengladbach’s 4-1 win over Union Berlin and bent his knees in tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Saturday saw US Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie wear an armband that reads “Justice for George” during his side’s home defeat to Werder Bremen.

The 20-year-old Sancho is one of the hottest properties in world football, recording his tally to 17 goals and 16 assists for the season with his first senior hat-trick.

Dortmund were held 0-0 in the first half, but Hazard’s goal broke the deadlock before Sancho set up a match with Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer also on the scoresheet.

The win leaves Dortmund seven points adrift of leaders Bayern Munich, a 5-0 winner over Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday, with five matches remaining, but the win was on time after losing ‘Der Klassiker’ to Bayern in midweek.

Borussia Moenchengladbach’s 4-1 win took them to third place and the Champions League.

VARIOUS.  Portuguese project that wears a shirt for mental health

Little phrases with big meaning sometimes fit into T-shirtright now in bag da Ivory, a project that began in the year of the pandemic and has been interventionally warning about mental health issues ever since.

Francisco Soares Ganzo, the founder, first suffered a panic attack when he was in 10th grade, but ended up not paying much attention to signs that something was wrong. Then the mental health problem reappeared later, at a different stage in life and with different symptoms.

“Four years ago, I started experiencing constant anxiety, to the point that I couldn’t sleep,” says 25-year-old Francisco Versa. “Basically, I put a lot of pressure on myself from the women with whom I had relationships. It was Wednesday masculinity, competition,” he continues.

Early adulthood began with this “almost obsession to be with women” and get the best. performanceto the point where he became very anxious whenever he had sexual relations with a woman.

“The peak was when I couldn’t sleep. My brain was always on and I started taking pills to help me sleep,” says Francisco.

In 2019, he decided to see a therapist rather than a psychologist because he thought it was only “for wimps”, but it wasn’t, and Francisco later figured it out.

Today, he wants to convey the same message, and to do so, he created the Ivory project in 2020, consisting of clothes and accessories with special messages that form a bridge to the necessary incentive for those in need of help.

“When I finally worked up the courage to ask for help, I was like, ‘Wow, I wish I had started sooner. That’s why I started this project. I lacked something that would motivate me to go to therapy earlier. clothes are meant to spread information,” he says.

But Ivory goes far beyond what is written in sweatshirts and accessories.

Help that comes in order

“Everyone you know is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”

This is one of the messages recorded in t-shirts e sweats from ivory. It’s simple and affects everyone in their own way, but the focus of the Ivory team – also with a past or present marked by mental health issues – is not the phrases on the T-shirts, but what follows them.

“To say that mental health is talked about a lot is a lie. What I mean? When I hear the news that companies are very concerned about mental health or that it has become fashionable with COVID-19, it is all a lie. What people say is vague. Nobody tells stories. A person who is really bad, like I was, does not need to hear that he should go to the gym or eat well. He needs to hear a story like this.” .

Ivory’s next step is to create a space for sharing testimonies through Appendixjust to address this shortcoming. Until then, the project intends to function as anxiety And further to support in the field of mental health.

“For every order we have, a person receives Email mail to make an appointment. Because our goal is to really open doors, to do something that I didn’t have, ”says Francisco. “I feel like a lot of people buy ivory because they’re in bad condition, but they don’t want to take the next step to take care of themselves.”

If encouragement is not enough, an ivory sweater will be cozy and Email mail gives you the push you need to make an appointment with one of Ivory’s psychologists. All it takes is an Instagram post or an email.
