Fifa plans to take disciplinary action against England & Scotland over poppy

Fifa has opened disciplinary proceedings against England and Scotland for wearing poppies in Friday’s World Cup qualifier.

Players from both countries wore black armbands bearing a poppy during England’s 3-0 win at Wembley, with the game taking place on Armistice Day.

Rules forbid “political” statements on shirts.

Fifa, world football’s governing body, would not “speculate on any outcome or provide an estimated timeline”.
