England captain Harry Kane could have faced sterner sanctions than being booked for wearing the OneLove armband in their World Cup opener against Iran as manager Gareth Southgate said the team remain committed to supporting the LGBTQ+ community.

Southgate has not ruled out his England team making a gesture to highlight human rights concerns in Qatar, as other nations have, but says they will not be pressured into doing so.

The German team covered their mouths for the team photo before their opening World Cup match against Japan on Wednesday, while the Australia squad released a video highlighting issues in the host country.

Seven European nations competing at the World Cup including Germany, England and Wales planned to wear OneLove anti-discrimination armbands during the tournament, but were dissuaded from doing so following the threat of sporting sanctions from FIFA.
