MPs condemn the FA for ‘collapsing’ over OneLove bracelet reversal

MEPs have criticized both the FA and FIFA after England and Wales decided not to wear OneLove armbands at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar amid threats of sporting sanctions.

Politicians and fan groups have also expressed “contempt” for FIFA after plans to wear the armbands were dropped under threat of yellow cards for captains Harry Kane and Gareth Bale.

Former Tory Minister Simon Clarke said: “Having the English or Welsh captains off the pitch because of a moral stance would have been the defining image of this World Cup. A challenge that FA and FA Wales have eluded.”
