England vs USA: England fans face stadium ban, FANS banned from wearing CRUSADER REPLICA costumes in Qatar, Check OUT

England fans have used mock mail, plastic helmets and toy guns as disguises for matches for years. But pictures of some fans dressed up as crusaders in Monday’s 6-2 win over Iran in the Qatari capital Doha have been criticized online, prompting the sport’s world governing body to crack down on the costumes.

“These costumes in an Arab or Middle Eastern context can be considered offensive, which is why they are not allowed in stadiums.” said a FIFA spokesman.

For many Arabs, the word crusade evokes a painful history of violent invasions by Christians trying to conquer Jerusalem and nearby areas under Islamic rule in the 11th to 13th centuries.

Questions about culture and rights were almost as much a focus as football at the World Cup in Qatar. Some Welsh fans have been ordered to remove LGBT rainbow hats for their side’s first game of the tournament against the United States earlier this week.

Same-sex relationships are illegal in Qatar. Welsh football authorities said on Thursday that FIFA had confirmed that fans wearing rainbow hats and flags would be allowed into the stadium for Friday’s game against Iran, which Wales lost 2-0.

The captains of England, Wales, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and Denmark this week dropped plans to wear armbands to support gay rights under pressure from FIFA.
