Harry Kane will defy FIFA and the FA will risk a fine by wearing their One Love armbands on Monday against Iran after FIFA tried to out flank them yesterday by announcing their own official armband slogan campaign.
The issue of captains’ armbands has been contentious ever since eight UEFA nations, including Germany, Denmark, Wales and Holland, announced they would wear One Love armbands as a sign of their commitment to gay rights and in support of human rights.
FIFA launched their own armband initiative yesterday, with captains in the first round instructed to wear an armband with the slogan #FootballUnitesTheWorld.

FIFA are likely to fine nations who veer from official FIFA diktats but will be weighing up how ridiculous they will look if they impose fines of nations over the issue.
The FA have said that they respect FIFA’s initiative but both them and Wales FA have insisted they will stick with their plan to wear One Love armbands.
