FOOTBALL: England captain Harry Kane could be banned from wearing the OneLove rainbow armband as it requires permission from FIFA and Qatar

England captain Harry Kane and others could be banned from wearing rainbow armbands at the World Cup

Eng­land cap­tain Har­ry Kane and oth­ers could be banned from wear­ing rain­bow arm­bands at the World Cup.

FA, along with nine oth­er Euro­pean coun­tries, sup­ports the “OneLove” cam­paign to end discrimination.

How­ev­er, FIFA has yet to issue a per­mit for cap­tains to wear arm­bands in Qatar. This pro­motes fun, inclu­siv­i­ty and anti-discrimination.

Kane wore his arm­band tonight against Italy in Milan, while Gareth Bale wore it in Wales’ loss to Bel­gium on Thursday.

But now the FA and the rest of the world must play the wait­ing game.

The host coun­try, Qatar, will decide, togeth­er with FIFA, whether to accept the requests of the Euro­pean coun­tries in the future.

Kane announced that he would be wear­ing his arm­band, say­ing, “I am hon­ored to join my fel­low nation­al team cap­tains in sup­port­ing this impor­tant OneLove campaign.

As cap­tains, we may com­pete against each oth­er on the pitch, but we stand togeth­er against all forms of discrimination. ”

“This is even more impor­tant now that divi­sion is becom­ing more com­mon in society.”

And Kane revealed that ses­sions with a secret fit­ness guru have helped him stay injury-free head­ing into competition.

The Tot­ten­ham strik­er, who once suf­fered from ankle and ham­string prob­lems, says he has had lit­tle trou­ble since work­ing with the Span­ish specialist.

In fact, since Jan­u­ary 2020, Kane has only missed a total of five games.

The Eng­land cap­tain said: ‘He’s found a phys­io­ther­a­pist and he’s real­ly nice.

“He worked hours and hours and had a real­ly good rela­tion­ship and he was real­ly helpful.

The con­di­tion of the “ankle” is chang­ing between before and now. I’m in a dif­fer­ent place.

There was a time when he was wor­ried, “For one sea­son, he can’t play con­sis­tent­ly.” Espe­cial­ly in big com­pe­ti­tions, it’s very nice to be in good shape.

“If you can think freely and play con­sis­tent­ly, that helps.”
