Polish Footballers Kneel for God But Not BLM Ahead of England Match


The Polish national football team refused to take a knee for Black Lives Matter ahead of their match with England this week, while the English players knelt as usual.

The incident took place just prior to Poland match against the English team at Wembley stadium in London this week for a World Cup qualifier match, ahead of the 2022 World Cup set to take place in Qatar.

While Polish players were seen kneeling and making the sign of the cross as they made their way onto the pitch, these were gestures of Christian piety rather than deference to BLM.

Instead of taking a knee with the English players when the time came to signal “solidarity” with the movement, the Polish players pointed to “Respect” badges on their sleeves. The move comes just a day after members of the Czech Republic’s national side also refused to take a knee ahead
