FIFA has called on teams taking part in World Cup qualifying matches this month to carry banners against racism.
And world football's governing body has decreed that team captains in both semi-finals of the Confederations Cup, on June 25 and 26, will make
statements rejecting racism just before kick-off, in its annual anti-discrimination day. Their squads will carry "Say No to Racism" banners, while
similar action will be taken during the quarter-finals of the World Youth Championship in the Netherlands on June 24 and 25.
