FA clarifies England's World Cup stance amid Prime Minister's Russia boycott

That accusation against Russian Federation is nonsense, said Dzhabarov, when commenting statements by British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Russian Football Union (RFU) vice president Nikita Simonyan says he doesn't consider the decision by UK Prime Minister Theresa May to ban British officials from attending the Russia 2018 World Cup "important".

Bryant's statement came as Mourinho was busy with United's Champions League last-16 second leg against Sevilla at Old Trafford tonight.

'It's important fans pay attention to guidance from the Foreign Office, ' he said.

THERE have been calls for the England football team to be withdrawn from the World Cup in Russia if it is found that Russians are responsible for the appalling attempt to murder the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

'You're advised to be vigilant, avoid protests or demonstrations and avoid commenting publicly on political developments'.

"At the same time, even they [the U.K.] do not seem to have decided yet: who should boycott the World Cup - the members of the royal family, government or the England national football team?"

'The FA will continue to work closely with the UK Government and relevant authorities regarding our participation in this summer's World Cup and the women's World Cup qualifier in Russian Federation, ' said the statement from Wembley.

Simonyan's words come as the United Kingdom foreign office urged British fans that do travel to Russian Federation 2018 to "be aware of possibility of anti-British harassment" and to "avoid talking about politics publicly". Prince William is the president of the FA. So now they want to "punish" us with a World Cup boycott.

The ministry said that it had "repeatedly warned that Western media would launch a full-scale media campaign to discredit Russian Federation and undermine its credibility as the host" of the World Cup.

'Regarding administrative and diplomatic representation at this summer's World Cup, it is up to each country independently to decide on their attendance'.
