VIDEO: England and Scotland wear poppy armbands in defiance of FIFA


England and Scotland stood shoulder-to-shoulder in defiance of FIFA on Armistice Day, remembering those that sacrificed their lives by wearing black armbands featuring poppies at Wembley.

Football's world governing body has said the wearing of poppies falls under the commercial, personal, political or religious messages that it has banned.

A fine or even a World Cup points deduction is possible.
