On Saturday 12th November 2011,England played the reigning World and European Champions Spain at Wembley.
England were refused permission by FIFA to wear the Remembrance Poppy on the shirts so instead had specially made armbands to wear and also on the jackets they wore during the National Anthems.
England poppy jacket, worn on the pitch at Wembley during the Anthem before the friendly with Spain.
Donated by the FA. to be auctioned to raise funds for the Royal British Legion I missed out on the original auction but luckily thanks to a non paying bidder I won the auction second time round.
Superb addition to the collection joining the match worn arm band from the same game.
