Harry Kane: England players will use their platform to inspire change


Harry Kane: England

England captain Harry Kane revealed that players will use their platform to improve the human rights issues in Qatar. There have been a number of accusations regarding the treatment of migrant workers since the country was awarded the World Cup finals in 2010. Homosexuality is punishable by a prison sentence while same-sex marriages are not recognized. Women’s rights are also much tighter compared to anywhere in the world.

“We had that meeting last night and I think it was important to talk with the manager and the staff and the players,” England captain Harry Kane said. “Obviously we wanted to qualify for the World Cup before doing that and we’ve done that. So it was our first chance to have that chat. Gareth led that meeting and we spoke about what to expect and some of the important issues which are surrounding the World Cup. For us now as players, it’s important to talk among ourselves – not just this camp but the camps going forward as well in June.”

“I feel as a group we’ve never shied away from important issues, and we’ve always had our opinions and tried to show unity in anything we’ve done. That’s what will happen now over this camp and the next camp to try to help in any way we can to support those issues,” he added. “As players, we didn’t choose where this World Cup was going to be. But what it has done is it has shone a light on important issues which might not have come to light if the World Cup wasn’t there. We have to try to help as much as possible to understand the issues and the situations. We’re no experts in that field at the moment in terms of what we know but as always we try to help in any way we can, we try to use our platform to help in any way we can.”
