David Beckham Explains Why He's Proud to Wear a Poppy

David Beckham is opening up about why he is proud to wear a poppy even though FIFA wants to ban poppies on shirts during the World Cup qualifiers taking place on Remembrance Day.

The memorial day is held to remember the members of the armed forces who have died while in duty and has been held on November 11 since WWI.

David was spotted wearing a poppy on his jacket while stepping out on Thursday (November 3) in London, England. He took to Instagram the next day to share why he is proud to be wearing the poppy.

“I was always proud to put on an England shirt and I feel the same way about wearing a Poppy. For me the Poppy is a small way we can show our appreciation for the incredible sacrifice that millions of men and women did on our behalf. It’s our way of showing we remember them. We should always be allowed to show our respect and remembrance for that sacrifice,” David captioned a photo of a veteran grabbing a poppy.
