England captain Harry Kane to wear OneLove armband against homophobia at World Cup… even if Fifa ban him


HARRY KANE will continue to wear a OneLove armband at the World Cup — even if ordered not to by Fifa.

The England skipper and nine other European country captains are supporting a season-long campaign against discrimination.

Three weeks ago national football governing bodies made a request to Fifa for permission to wear the colourful armbands in matches.

World football chiefs have still yet to give them the green light for Qatar.

But the English FA will ignore any orders from Fifa and pay any fines imposed.

The other Uefa countries – although hoping Fifa approve the armbands – will follow England’s stance by insisting on wearing them.

The armbands are in support a season-long ‘OneLove’ campaign for inclusion and fight against discrimination.

Captains from Wales, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and Switzerland have also donned them to back the cause.

It is part of a European push for improved human rights at this winter’s World Cup.

The logo on the armband is a heart filled with the rainbow colours.

It is now instantly recognisable as a symbol of backing for the LGBTQ cause.

It means support for gay footballers and fans will be carried on the arms of teams playing in Qatar, where homosexuality is banned.

Kane, who will wore it for the first time in Nations League matches last month, said: “I am honoured to join my fellow national team captains in supporting the important OneLove campaign.”
