The FA has been fined 70،000 Swiss francs (£50،000) after Dele Alli، Eric Dier and Raheem Sterling wore "unauthorised" socks at the World Cup، according to BBC.

The players wore branded ankle support socks over official Nike socks، ignoring a Fifa warning to stop.

Fifa said the FA's fine was for "breaching media and marketing regulations and the Fifa equipment regulations".

The fine followed England's quarter-final win over Sweden.

Fifa said several England players "continued to display unauthorised commercial branding on playing equipment items before and during the quarter-final match between Sweden and England".

The Swedish FA has also been punished with the same fine for a similar sock offence earlier in the tournament.

That makes it the joint second highest fine at the World Cup behind Argentina's 105،000 Swiss franc (£80،000) punishment after their fans threw objects and chanted homophobic abuse.
