German football federation (DFB) president Bernd Neuendorf said football governing body FIFA’s decision to ban the multi-coloured One Love captain’s armband at the World Cup “was a threat.”

Nations previously planning to wear the armband in Qatar in support of diversity and the LGBTQ community have backed down amid fears of sanctions from FIFA, a joint statement said on Monday.

The seven European nations who had signed up to the One Love campaign, including England and Germany, had previously said they were prepared to pay fines, but now stressed: “FIFA has been very clear that it will impose sporting sanctions if our captains wear the armbands on the field of play.
