When Denmark meets England at Parken Stadium in the Nations League on Tuesday next week, both teams will be on their knees in support of the Black Lives Matter movement before kickoff.
The English striker Mason Greenwood had expressed that it was very likely that the players in England would kneel down before the match, and the Danes have now followed suit.
“We players would very much like to back England’s desire to kneel before kickoff on Tuesday,” said Denmark’s captain Simon Kjær.
“So together with the English players, we want to show that we stand together against racism and discrimination by kneeling before the starting whistle blows. It’s a very important move and it means something to every one of us on the team. ”
