The Football Association has been warned by FIFA after England fans engaged in “political chants” during Wednesday’s semi-final defeat to Croatia.
On Thursday, FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings against the FA following a report of “possible discriminatory” chanting by England fans in Moscow’s semi-final.
After having studied footage from the game, FIFA’s disciplinary committee has determined a small minority of those in attendance at the Luzhniki Stadium were guilty of misconduct. FIFA said it “considered all factors”, including the incident being “triggered by a very small group of fans”.
Two players wore “unauthorised commercial branding” and for this reason, FA has been fined £50,000. A similar sanction was imposed after the quarter-final.
