It was a poor challenge really but I think it is one that fortunately we have got away with reasonably lightly. ”Ben Burrows25 November 2022 00:001669330800World Cup 2022: England vs USAEngland defender Harry Maguire never feared missing out on the World Cup despite his relatively indifferent form for Manchester United this season. Maguire, who is no longer a first choice under United boss Erik ten Hag this season, is set to keep his place for England’s second Group B clash against the United States on Friday.
Speaking after the Iran win, Southgate said he was concerned his side could miss out on penalties if the pre-tournament briefing clouded the judgement of officials. Pickford, who was beaten by Taremi’s late penalty, wants England to still be treated fairly. “It got brought up in the referee’s meeting which we were involved in but hopefully we get the fair side of it, ” he said.
Two other members of the OneLove group, Belgium and Switzerland, also declined to make gestures during their respective opening matches. “We’re definitely highly supportive of our LGBTQ fanbase and I know some of them feel a little disappointed in terms of the armband not being worn, ” added Southgate.
Maguire said: “I have great belief in myself. When I go on the training pitch I work as hard as possible and that gives you good preparation to perform to the best level. “I want to be playing every week for my club, so I’m going to fight to get back into the team, but I feel fresh and I knew the World Cup was coming up so I put in the extra shifts. ”England defender Harry Maguire never feared missing out on the World Cup despite his relatively indifferent form for Manchester United this season.

Seven European nations competing at the World Cup - including Germany, England and Wales - were due to wear the armbands as part of a year-long campaign, a move seen as especially significant in Qatar, a country where same-sex relationships are criminalised. However, the threat of sporting sanctions from Fifa - starting with yellow cards for the captains wearing the armbands - forced the OneLove group to drop their plans on Monday. Ashley Brown, from the Football Supporters’ Association’s England Fans’ Embassy, welcomed the German protest and believes England’s players will have taken note. “For all its corporate messaging around diversity, and everyone being welcome, Fifa capitulated to intolerance when it banned players from wearing the One Love armband, ” Brown said.
“We’ll talk about these sorts of things, ” John Stones said. “We don’t want to get carried away with what other people are doing. We want to stay true to our own values - but at the same time, we do want to make things heard and aware of, how we feel, we want to get everyone’s opinion across in the right way. “I feel it’s really difficult at the minute to do that without upsetting peoples’ rules or whatever it might be. There’s a really fine line with all this and so far we’re trying to stick to our values and what we believe in as a team. Make sure we don’t get pushed over. ”Ben Burrows24 November 2022 22:371669327200World Cup 2022: England vs USASouthgate acknowledged that England have faced some criticism for dropping their plan to wear the armbands.

“It’s never going to be perfect. You’re never going to be happy all the time with VAR decisions but I think Harry’s one could have been a penalty from even my point of view.

There wouldn’t even have been the prospect of an iconic photo, as any sanction would have been administered before the teams set out onto the pitch. It was for this reason that the federations were keen to take the decision out of the players’ hands, and not put them under any pressure. The relatively small gesture of the armbands - a protest against Qatar’s laws and attitude to LGBTQ+ groups - has become one of the biggest issues in a hugely controversial World Cup.
