Kick It Out and the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) have called on England fans to drown out potential boos at Wembley this Sunday by applauding their players for taking a knee.
England face Croatia in their Euro 2020 opener on Sunday, with Gareth Southgate’s side set to take a knee despite facing jeers from some supporters in warm-up fixtures against Austria and Romania.
Tony Burnett, Kick It Out CEO, says: “Gareth Southgate and the England players have made their position really clear – they are taking the knee as an anti-discrimination gesture, it is in no way linked to any political organisation.
“All of us England fans, myself included, want to see England succeed in the Euros, so we are asking for fans at the games to drown out boos with applause and show the players we are behind them.”
