British PM Cameron calls on FIFA to reverse poppy farce

British PM David Cameron has slammed FIFA's ban for England's players.

The Prime Minister called for FIFA to reverse the "absurd" decision that is stopping the team having the remembrance symbol embroidered on their shirts for this Saturday's friendly against Spain at Wembley.

Mr Cameron said: "This seems outrageous. The idea that wearing a poppy to remember those who have given their lives for our freedom is a political act is absurd.

"Wearing a poppy is an act of huge respect and national pride.

"I hope FIFA will reconsider."
