Kane will wear an anti-discrimination bracelet at the World Cup in Qatar


England captain Harry Kane will wear an anti-discrimination armband before and during the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

The Tottenham Hotspur footballer has joined this initiative, called “OneLove” also supported by the captains of Wales, Holland, Belgium, France, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

The captains of these teams will wear a bracelet with a multicolored heart in the center. The first time Kane will wear this bracelet will be this Friday in the Nations League match against Italy in Milan. On the same day, England players will wear a black armband for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II two weeks ago.

The OneLove initiative aims to highlight inequalities and discrimination in a country like Qatar, where relationships between people of the same sex are prohibited and punishable by law.

“I’m honored to join my teammates from other teams in supporting this important campaign. As captains, we compete against each other on the field, but off the field, we stand together against discrimination of any kind,” Kane said.
