England prepared to be fined for Harry Kane wearing One Love armband in Qatar

Sky News has been informed by Mark Bullingham, FA chief executive, that England captain Harry Kane was wearing a “One Love” armband at the World Cup.

Interview at the England training camp Qatar. Mr Bulligham said that FIFA had not responded to the FA’s request for the multicoloured garment two months ago.

The armband does not refer to anti-LGBT laws but is meant to encourage inclusion.

FIFA prohibits the use of unapproved slogans on kits. Recently, FIFA urged teams to refrain from giving morality lessons at the first World Cup.

Sky News’ Mr Bullingham stated that “they haven’t given us any reply to our letter.”

“I believe there is a chance that we could be fined. If we are fined, we will pay the penalty.

“We believe it is important to demonstrate our values. We will do that.”

According to the FA, gay fans will be allowed to visit Qatar without fear and they will not be discriminated against by Qatari authorities.

Mr Bullingham stated that it was sad for them that so many of our LGBTQ fans had decided not to attend and that a lot of our Three Lions Pride members have not yet made plans to attend.

“And that was frustrating because the didn’t get all the information they needed in time to make their arrangements.”

England will continue its presence in Qatar for more compensation for the families of low-paid workers as well as a permanent migrant worker center.

Bullingham said: “I believe that there has been a lot of positive progress over the past four years.”

“The most important thing for us is that these two remaining issues be resolved. Together with other European countries, we will be exerting a lot pressure on FIFA.

Gareth Southgate steered England to the World Cup semi final in 2018 and to the European Championship final last season.

Mr Bullingham stated that: “We enter any major tournament hoping to do as well and we believe we’re among six or eight teams that could win it.”

Southgate’s future is in doubt after six years of being in charge.

He said, “We believe that he is doing a fantastic job.” He has done a fantastic job in the two previous senior tournaments. We want him to continue leading us.”

Southgate is still under contract until 2024. But, could he leave after the World Cup? Especially if England repeats its 1966 victory? And who could replace him.

Mr Bullingham stated that it would be a wonderful problem if we won the trophy. We have Gareth secured until 2024, and we feel confident that he will lead us forward.
