  • England advanced to the World Cup semifinals by beating Sweden

The Football Association have been fined more than £50,000 because three England players have been unauthorised socks at Russian Federation 2018 in breach of FIFA rules.

If they beat Croatia and progress to the World Cup final, the FA won't care one little bit about that 70,000 Swiss Francs fine.

It added: "FIFA had previously requested the Football Association to cease the activity that led to the sanction".

Raheem Sterling, Dele Alli and Eric Dier have all been pictured in the socks in an act which has been described as a breach of "media and marketing regulations and the Fifa equipment regulations" by football's governing body.

The Swedish FA was also fined £53,211 after captain Andreas Granqvist ignored warnings to stop wearing the TRUsox product ahead of Saturday's quarter-final against the Three Lions.

In the same disciplinary update, Federation Internationale de Football Association announced it was also fining Uruguay's FA nearly £40,000 for arriving late to a stadium and because one player has breached its equipment rules. "In particular, several members of the English national team continued to display unauthorised commercial branding on playing equipment items before and during the quarterfinal match between Sweden and England".

The piece of kit is extremely common in the game, with Luis Suarez, Alexis Sanchez, Radamel Falcao and Gareth Bale some of the most high-profile players who wear them on a regular basis.

World Cup semifinal opponents England and Croatia's fines over sponsorship protocols are both approximately 10 times the fine that the Russian soccer federation was hit with after its fans were seen unfurling a banner featuring neo-Nazi messaging.
