England’s game in the World Cup

In similar anti-love news, in a separate matter England, Wales, Belgium, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands have abandoned plans to wear OneLove anti-discrimination armbands under pressure from FIFA. A joint statement from the nations read: “FIFA has been very clear that it will impose sporting sanctions if our captains wear the armbands on the field of play. As national federations, we can’t put our players in a position where they could face sporting sanctions including bookings, so we have asked the captains not to attempt to wear the armbands in FIFA World Cup games.” The armbands are a symbol of diversity, inclusion and anti-discrimination.
