Remembrance in 2020 will be observed a little differently.

In the year that marked 75 years since VE Day and VJ Day, the FA has published an article by FA Associate Historian, Brian Beard, remembering the fallen England Internationals who died at War.

In addition, The FA have also published an article featuring Captain Sir Tom Moore, the first member and skipper of The FA's Lionhearts squad, who sends his message of support on Remembrance Sunday to the former England players who also served for their country’s Armed Forces.

The FA Lionhearts are a collection of 23 heroes who The FA have recognised for their achievements away from the football pitch in what has been a tough year for everyone.
