They do not want the opponents to know what they are planning.

shocked. Op, this same question was asked me by my younger bro when the game between nigeria and argentina was still on.

Most talks made on the pitch is to strategise a means to break down the opponent's defence so in order not to alert the opponent on what you guys intend doing, you cover your mouth with your hand and discuss with your team mate on a low tone. grin

It was after Zidane headbutt. Sign language people started speculating what d discussion was based on lip movement

I think there are people who can read the lips, to know what someone is saying. The players are just being cautious.
