England manager Gareth Southgate believes there is ‘little more the players can do’ to tackle human rights issues in Qatar after the decision to wearing special captain’s armbands during the World Cup has been criticized.

The Football Association announced on Wednesday that it has joined nine other European federations in joining the OneLove anti-discrimination campaign.

As part of this, England captain Harry Kane will wear an armband supporting the campaign at the finals this winter, along with the skippers of the other eight European listed nations whose teams have qualified.
