Footballers against homophobia

Today we had a special assembly about footballers against homophobia (which means using the word gay to mean something bad.) We talked about how some footballers experienced this type of bullying from the crowd. Some of the footballers decided to set up Footballers Against Homophobia, to show people this was not ok. Many famous footballers wear Footballers Against Homophobia t-shirts to show they support this. Which famous footballers can you spot, wearing these t-shirts?
