Both sides will wear black armbands sporting poppies to mark Armistice Day after FIFA changed its controversial restrictions.England players will be able to wear poppies without fear of punishment after Germany agreed to join them in the gesture of remembrance Germany players will join England in wearing black armbands sporting poppies for their friendly at Wembley on Friday. The show of remembrance comes just a few weeks after governing body FIFA changed its rules regarding what can be displayed on kits having fined England Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland last year for displaying poppies to commemorate Armistice Day. FIFA had considered the poppy to be a political symbol. It sparked outrage across the country with even Prime Minister Theresa May wading into the row. But now teams can wear poppies so long as their opponents and the organisers of the fixture agree. England Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland have confirmed they will seek permission to display the poppy on armbands for fixtures in the week leading up to and including Remembrance Sunday each year. Reinhard Grindel president of the German Football Association said: "I positively welcome the decision to allow both the English and the German national teams to wear poppy armbands because these are not about political propaganda in any way. "They're about remembering the kind of values that were kicked to the ground in two world wars but are cherished by football: respect tolerance and humanity."Wembley's arch will light up to mark Armistice Day similarly to how it remembered victims of the Paris attack when England played France English FA chief executive Martin Glenn added: "Remembering and commemorating the men and women who have served this country is ingrained in our nation. "Many have made the ultimate sacrifice and we will be honouring them both on and off the pitch for our match against Germany. "I would like to thank the German FA for also agreeing to wear the poppy for the match in a show of solidarity and unity at this important time." RAF Army and Navy representatives will lay wreaths before the 8pm kick-off and there will also be a minute's silence after the national anthems during which the arch above the stadium will glow red and "Football Remembers" will be displayed on the big screen. Poppy sellers will be stationed inside and outside the ground and a replica of The Truce statue which depicts the historic First World War ceasefire on Christmas Day in 1914 during which games of football broke out between English and German troops will be on display beside the Bobby Moore statue. Friday night's match will also mark the first time video assistant referee (VAR) technology is used in an official game in the UK. It is designed to help officials make the correct calls on key incidents such as goals red cards and penalties.
Please take time on Saturday, November 11th to remember our Veterans. Their dedication and sacrifices preserve our freedom and allow us to live in the greatest nation in the world. Read the history below to better understand why we celebrate at this time. Here is a brief history of Veterans Day: World War I ended with the signing of the Armistice which was a temporary cessation of hostilities. The Armistice was signed at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. The next year, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11th to remember our fallen soldiers who died in what was known then as "the great war." The original concept of the celebration was to suspend business for a two-minute period at 11am. The day was also marked with parades and public meetings. In 1921, Congress passed legislation approving the establishment of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. Every year on November 11th, there is a ceremony at the tomb to remember our fallen heroes. In 1938, Congress made the 11th of November (Armistice Day) a legal federal holiday. Although the States retained the rights to establish their own holidays, every state agreed. In 1953, a shoe repairman from Kansas named Stephan Riod had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who died in World War I. He began a campaign to turn Armistice Day into "All" Veterans Day. The idea caught on and in 1954, President Eisenhower signed the law to change the name to Veterans Day.
