I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw this. FIFA are banning poppy symbols from the England players' shirts for the friendly against Spain!! What a disgrace. FIFA have no respect for the brave armed forces who gave up their lives. Absolute disgrace.

i think FIFA are against WAR...which is correct.

but the symbol is not for war itself but for the people who have died. so they should allow the symbol.

thing is though i have to admit england are special when it comes to this, first go to war. then cry that people died. i mean no disrespect to those who have been forced to go there and fight though. i respect those people obviously.

but FIFA are idiots by doing this though, disgrace. FIFA have been corrupt for a while now.
