Soccer: England will wear nameless shirts to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s Disease

# Soccer: England will play without names on the backs of their shirts during the second half of their international friendly against Belgium in London today. This is to raise awareness of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease. The players say they want to show how people suffering from dementia can lose precious memories. The plan is part of the governing body F-A’s partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society. England uses the match as preparation for Euro 2024 and follows the disappointing nil-1 loss to Brazil this weekend.
