England are braced for a fine over Harry Kane’s ‘One Love’ captain’s armband that will promote inclusivity at the Qatar World Cup… with FIFA yet to reply to the FA’s request to wear it after TWO MONTHS

The FA are braced to receive a fine when England captain Harry Kane wears a ‘One Love’ armband at the World Cup in Qatar.

Whilst not designed to reference anti-LGBTQ laws directly, England’s armband will be worn in an effort to promote inclusivity within a country that outlaws same sex relationships.

Qatar has been the subject of fierce criticism throughout the build-up to the major tournament, which starts on Sunday, because of their stance on same-sex relationships.

FIFA usually prohibit the use of slogans or political messages on kits and recently told players not to get involved in political matters during the tournament. 

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham revealed to Sky Sports on Thursday that the governing body had sent a request to FIFA asking to wear the multicoloured armband at the tournament.

‘I think there’s a possibility that we might be fined. And if we are, then we’ll pay the fine.

‘We think it’s really important to show our values. And that’s what we’ll be doing.

‘It’s sad for us that quite a few of our LGBTQ fans have decided not to come and I know a lot of our Three Lions Pride members are not coming.

‘And that was frustrating because they didn’t get the information they wanted in time to make their arrangements.’

Gareth Southgate led his side to a World Cup semi-final in 2018 and to the final of Euro 2020 last year.
