Harry Kane discusses Qatar stance with Christian Eriksen, Hugo Lloris

England captain Harry Kane said he had spoken to France captain Hugo Lloris and Denmark’s Christian Eriksen about their team taking a united stance on human rights issues related to this year’s World Cup in Qatar.

Homosexuality is illegal in Qatar while an Amnesty International report found that thousands of migrant workers in the country are being exploited.

The Qatari government, which denied the accusations in the Amnesty International report, said it had introduced various reforms in the past five years, including a new national minimum wage and the abolition of exit permits.

Kane, who said in March that the England squad met to discuss issues ahead of the tournament, said he had been speaking with players from other countries, including former Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Eriksen and current Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

“Christian Eriksen called me two weeks ago now,” Kane told reporters on Monday.

“Obviously there’s Hugo Lloris, with whom I communicate a lot anyway. So the discussion was there to do something collectively.

“When we make a decision on something we want to do, we will definitely share it.

“I think it will be important to do it collectively. I feel it will be a little bit more attitude, a little bit more strength.”

England, who are at the bottom of their Nations League group with two points, will meet Hungary later on Tuesday.

The World Cup will run from November 21 to December 18.
