They were one of seven nations, including England and Wales, planning for their skippers to wear One Love armbands in their opening World Cup matches.

The armbands promote inclusivity and LGBTQ+ rights, with same-sex relationships illegal in Qatar.

Alongside the above three, Germany, France, Belgium, and Switzerland had all planned for their captains to wear them also.

But the seven skippers were warned by Fifa that they faced a yellow card as a "minimum" punishment for wearing the armbands.

Germany sent a defiant message to Fifa with an iconic team photo ahead of their shock World Cup defeat to Japan yesterday.

Their players lined up for the pre-match team photo and all covered their mouths with their right hand - an act to show they had been silenced by the tournament organisers.

Now it has emerged that England hero Kane, who was back training today after an injury scare ahead of Friday’s clash with USA, also made his own personal statement.

The 29-year-old led the squad from the team coach into the dressing-room at the Khalifa International Stadium before the 6-2 win over Iran wearing a £535,000 Rainbow Rolex.

Instagram account Insane Luxury Life shared a snap of the timepiece, which was previously worn by Stormzy at the Brit Awards in 2020, and the star wearing it.

And they captioned it with: “The captain of England @harrykane wears a rare @rolex Daytona ‘Rainbow’ 116595RBOW in 18k rose gold, one of the most sought after pieces on market.

“This masterpiece is set with 36 baguette-cut rainbow sapphires on bezel, 56 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case and 11 baguette-cut rainbow colored sapphires as hour markers.

“The Daytona Rainbow was first released in 2012 in 18k white gold and 18k yellow gold, at the time they weren’t much appreciated by the market. #Rolex.”

They then shared that the retail price is $135,850, while the current market price is $650,000.

It comes amid news that Qatar has been ordered by Fifa to stop forcing fans to remove their rainbow hats when they enter stadiums.

Security guards ahead of Wales' 1-1 draw with the USA cracked down on fans wearing pro-LGBTQ+ clothing at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.

Fans reported being forced to remove rainbow-coloured bucket hats, rainbow wristbands and even rainbow laces.

And one man even reported he was refused entry to the stadium because he was wearing a T-shirt sporting a rainbow.

LGBTQ+ rights have been at the centre of controversies around the World Cup - with same-sex relationships punishable by death in Qatar.

Welsh fan group The Rainbow Wall reported only women were targeted and forced to remove their rainbow clobber.

And this included former Wales international football star Laura McAllister.

England rugby coach Eddie Jones set to be SACKED after dismal run of form a year ahead of the World Cup

ENGLAND boss Eddie Jones looks set to get the bullet on Tuesday.

Leicester head coach Steve Borthwick is in line to take over — about a year earlier than expected — if the RFU can lure him away from Welford Road.

The union have not confirmed Jones’ exit, ahead of Tuesday's board meeting.

But despite fighting his corner, the Aussie looks doomed.

The Tigers have said they would not stand in Borthwick’s way if he chose to leave for England’s top job  but the RFU would need to shell out.

Borthwick is likely to want to take some of his assistants at Leicester with him, potentially defence coach Kevin Sinfield and performance guru Aled Walters, who helped the Springboks win the last World Cup.

Jones met with the panel reviewing England’s dismal recent results  yesterday and RFU chief executive Bill Sweeney will report to his board today.

The board is set to side with Sweeney whether he decides to back or sack his head coach with the World Cup just nine months away.

Jones was reportedly fearing for his future but was intent on coming out swinging in yesterday’s meeting.

Three of his assistant coaches, Richard Cockerill, Martin Gleeson and Matt Proudfoot, also met the RFU and their futures remain uncertain.

Union chiefs remain concerned about the churn of staff under Jones.

Defence coach Anthony Seibold recently went back to rugby league and medic Richard Tingay left his post.

With Warren Gatland out of the frame after Wales fast-tracked his reappointment to their top job, the RFU have a race against time to fill their  hole if Jones exits.

England are due to have a training camp around New Year and face Scotland in their Six Nations opener on February 4, leaving a new man little time to bed in. 

But Gatland getting the Welsh gig again could have worked in Jones’ favour as the RFU would have to cut through some red tape to get Borthwick.

And it will cost the cash-strapped union if he got the bullet 11 months before his contract expires, with Jones expected to trouser around £700,000.

Kiwi Scott Robertson, who was recently in England to coach the Barbarians, is thought to have been contacted by the RFU.

Robertson is contracted to  Super Rugby outfit Crusaders and they would need paying off if Twickenham came calling.

Jones conjured a Grand Slam in 2016 after taking over following the 2015 World Cup fiasco and led England to the last global final.
