World Cup: England told to boycott tournament in Qatar
Former England midfielder Matt Le Tissier has urged the Three Lions to boycott the 2022 FIFA World Cup over the "One Love" armband mess.
Le Tissier also wants Gareth Southgate’s team to rescind their FIFA membership.
England and Wales, as well as some other countries, were planning to wear the OneLove armbands promoting inclusivity and LGBTQ+ rights in Qatar, a nation that criminalizes same-sex relationships.
But all the nations backed down once FIFA threatened to give cards to players who wore them.
Speaking about England’s decision to back down, Le Tissier told GB News, “It just goes to prove what a lot of people are saying about it." It’s pure virtue signalling. "They aren’t 100 percent wholeheartedly behind it.”
He continued, “If you want to make a real statement, then you boycott the World Cup." "What would make an even better statement is if they boycotted FIFA and rescinded their membership because that organization is rotten to the core.”
