Harry Kane, the star player of the English Premier League team Tottenham Hotspurs, announced that he decided to wear the ‘One Love’ armband as the captain of the English national team at the 2022 World Cup to show his support for the LGBT+ community.
It was learned that FIFA held a standard meeting with team officials on Sunday and that extra equipment is not allowed to be worn in matches as per the rules.
Will Harry Kane be sanctioned?
In the news in The Telegraph newspaper, he stated that in the matches of some European countries that promised to wear an armband in Qatar, the team captain could be punished as soon as the match starts.
In the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar, the attempt of footballers to wear the ‘One Love’ armband, designed to show solidarity with the LGBT+ community, was banned, while it was claimed that England captain Harry Kane would appear with the mentioned armband for the England-Iran match to be played today. So what will happen if the star football player comes to the game with the ‘One Love’ armband?
