FIFA fine England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

England have been fined 45,000 Swiss francs (£35,000) by FIFA for the “display of a political symbol and several cases of spectator misconduct” in the “framework” of their World Cup qualifier against Scotland, who have been fined CHF 20,000 (£15,700).

Wales did not opt for a visible commemoration by their team, but fans wore poppies in the stands, while a card mosaic was raised before their match against Serbia, which has resulted in a fine of 20,000 (£15,700).

“With these decisions, it is not our intention to judge or question specific commemorations as we fully respect the significance of such moments in the respective countries, each one of them with its own history and background,” said Claudio Sulser, the chairman of FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee.
