THE FA HAS confirmed it will appeal against the £35,000 fine imposed by FIFA for displaying poppies before and during England’s World Cup qualifier with Scotland.
Players from both England and Scotland wore black armbands featuring poppies, while wreaths were laid before kick-off at Wembley in a match that fell on November 11, Armistice Day in the United Kingdom.
Spectators in the crowd wearing poppies also made up part of the charges for both countries.
“We note the decision by the FIFA disciplinary committee, which we intend to appeal,” the FA posted on Twitter.
