English FA Chief Executive Mark Bullingham did not attend a meeting with FIFA ahead of the World Cup to discuss wearing OneLove armbands during the tournament.

Germany, England and Wales were among the nations which opted against wearing the armband in Qatar due to the threat that their respective captains could receive yellow cards for doing so. The late decisions from the respective FAs have been heavily criticised.

The German FA are planning legal action against FIFA due to their stance while the German national teams actions before kick-off against Japan grabbed the headlines on Wednesday. The team posed for a photo in which all 11 players covered their mouths in protest prior to their shock loss to Japan.

English FA chief Bullingham did not go to a pre-World Cup summit with FIFA on 12 October which would have discussed the wearing of the armband. The UEFA Working Group opted that three of their member nations would attend the short-notice meeting and would report back to nations who had an intention of wearing the armband.
