England announced for knee

England announced for knee and confirmed that they will take a knee when they play Iran in their first World Cup group stage game on Monday.

People have talked a lot about what the Three Lions will do to deal with issues of diversity and inequality in Qatar. Team captain Harry Kane has already said that he will wear a OneLove armband instead of the normal one.

This season, taking a knee has been done less often in the Premier League because of concerns that its message and effect had been lost. However, manager Gareth Southgate told the press that his team would still be doing it.

“”It’s what we stand for as a team,” he said. “But we know that in the Premier League, the clubs have decided to only do that for big games.” We think this is the most important.”

Southgate added, “We think it’s a strong message that will go around the world, especially to young people, to show how important it is to be inclusive.”

The act first showed up in football when it came back behind closed doors in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Players and clubs took a stand against racial injustice after the Black Lives Matter movement.

Under Southgate, England has always kneeled before games, even though the Premier League has become more relaxed about the action.

England announced for knee. They start their Group B season on Monday at 13:00 GMT.
