England star Harry Kane hits out at FIFA as he’s left ‘disappointed’ over rainbow armband
Daily Express says Harry Kane has expressed his “disappointment” at FIFA after they effectively stopped him from wearing the One Love rainbow armband. The World Cup tournament authorities confirmed just hours before kick-off that they would book team captains if they wore the anti-discrimination symbol.
“I said yesterday we wanted to wear it, that decision was taken out of my hands today,” Kane said. “I turned up to the stadium to find the armband that I wore and I was told I had to wear that. Look, it’s out of our control as players. I’m sure the FA and FIFA will continue those discussions.
“You’ve seen over the last five years we’ve made a stand as a squad and we’ll continue to do that as much as we can. We took the knee today, as well, but sometimes these decisions aren’t up to us and that’s the bottom line.
