FIFA has banned England from wearing the OneLove armband during their World Cup opener against Iran.
The controversy surrounding the World Cup in Qatar has been widely reported and the latest incident has involved countries wanting to wear the OneLove bracelet during their matches.
Now, according to the Telegraph, FIFA has banned England from wearing the armband, and captain Harry Kane could get a booking as soon as the match starts if he decides to wear it, which is against FIFA’s rules.

Again, the main topics of conversation leading up to the tournament are heavily focused on controversy, which is not what every football fan wishes when the World Cup kicks off.
England initially decided to wear the bracelet, but should a booking affect Kane, they may change their mind.
Hitting a penalty on England’s head is unlikely to deter them, but if it hits them on the pitch they may have to reconsider their stance, which is a real shame as it’s great to see the country stand their ground.
