This meant that the FA rescinded the proposal in order to prevent Kane from collecting a yellow card early in the game, despite having previously believed that they would simply face a fine.

However, when questioned, Kane defended himself and his teammates, stating that the team’s moral acts speak for itself, referring to the decision to kneel before the game.

“Look, it’s out of our control as players. I’m sure the FA and FIFA will continue those discussions but most importantly today we focused on the game and got a great result.

“You’ve seen over the last five years we’ve made a stand as a squad and we’ll continue to do that as much as we can. We took the knee today as well but sometimes these decisions aren’t up to us and that’s the bottom line.

“As a squad, our focus was on the game today and I think we showed we’re a really good team and have full focus on what we need to do.

Despite FIFA’s decision, Kane said he wasn’t angry at the governing body.

“I’m not going to say words to get headlines – I said I was disappointed I wasn’t able to wear it but that’s it.”
