UK PM May, Faults FIFA’s Decline To Wearing Of Poppies Armbands

BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – UK Prime Minister Mrs. Theresa May has faulted FIFA’s decline in allowing England and Scotland players to wear armbands featuring poppies.

Mrs May declared Wednesday that the world Football Governing body’s decision was “outrageous”.

England and Scotland are scheduled to meet at Wembley, Friday, November 11 – the day when the UK remembers its war dead.

It would be recalled FIFA Tuesday rebuffed the plan, reiterating that its ban on political, religious or commercial messages and inscriptions on shirts remain.

“Before they start telling us what to do, they jolly well ought to sort their own house out,” said Mrs. May challenged.

“Our football players want to recognize and respect those who have given their lives for our safety and security – I think it is absolutely right they should be able to do so’’, the PM added.

Mrs. May insisted that the wearing of poppies was a matter for the English and Scottish Football Associations to resolve, yet, there was a “clear message” from the House of Commons that “we want our players to be able to wear those poppies”.
