On Monday, President of the England FA announced with other six major football associations that their captains will not wear “One Love” cuffs at the Qatar World Cup.
Nine countries including England, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium agreed in September that their captains will wear the “One Love” armband at the World Cup to support the LGBTQ group.
However, the President of the England FA wrote in a statement on Monday: “The FIFA clearly states that if our captain wore a cuffling on the field, they will be punished. Yellow card, so we ask the team’s captain not to wear sleeves on the World Cup. “
“We are preparing to pay a fine for violating the rules of dressing, and resolutely promise to wear a sleeve label. However, we cannot put the players in such a situation. They may be shown yellow cards and even expelled.”
This means that England Captain Kane will not wear “One Love” cuffs. Except for England, the German team, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgian and Wales’s captains will not wear cuffling on the Qatar World Cup.
