Fifa Poppy ‘Ban’ For England Players Questioned By Football Association Ahead Of Armistice Day Match

The FA is looking at what will happen if they go ahead without permission.

A row has broken out once again about the wearing of poppies on the football pitch ahead of Armistice Day.

The Football Association (FA) is currently in talks with Fifa over whether England players can wear poppies during their World Cup qualifying match, BBC Sport reported.

England is set to face Scotland at Wembley on 11 November but there has been question over whether they would face punishment for wearing the symbol of remembrance, since Fifa does not allowed political, religious or commercial messages on shirts.

The BBC said that the FA is trying to determine what punishment England would face if they went ahead and wore the symbols without permission.

The Scottish FA is also in talks over the issue.

The Sun even went as far as to claim that the FA had actually banned the wearing of poppieS.

FA are trying to find a solution to FIFA’s request that England and Scotland’s players not wearing poppies.
