Fifa to take no action due to ‘a lack of concluding evidence’ following reports of fans singing racist songs during World Cup qualifier in San Marino.
Football’s governing body, Fifa, have this afternoon released a statement confirming that the FA will face no action following allegations that racist songs were sung by England fans during a World Cup qualifier in March.
Fifa said: "It has been decided not to open disciplinary proceedings due to the lack of concluding evidence."
However, it has urged the FA to take "preventative measures" in future.
Reports immediately after the game suggested that brothers Rio and Anton Ferdinand were the target of a particular chant by England fans during the match; a game for which Rio Ferdinand was due to be selected before making himself unavailable.
Fifa may well get closer to the truth regarding this type of accusation in the future, having announced on Tuesday their intention to appoint ‘specialist racism observers’ for games as part of recommendations made by the organisations new anti-racism taskforce.
