England boycott could potentially cost future World Cup appearances

Tim Farron

Russian Federation further accused Germany's Bild newspaper of following the same "orders" after its editor-in-chief wrote an article comparing the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation to the 1936 Olympics in Berlin hosted by Hitler.

The English FA has provided the only reason England may not be at the 2018 World in Russian Federation.

Several lawmakers called for a ban on RT on Monday after British Prime Minister Theresa May said it was "highly likely" that Russian Federation was behind the attack on former double agent Sergei Skripal.

Prime Minister Theresa May said earlier on Monday it was "highly likely" that Moscow was responsible for the attack.

Labour MP Stephen Kinnock yesterday told the BBC that the World Cup should either be delayed or even held in a different country.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov says Moscow has "stopped paying attention" to the poisoning claims and Russia denies wrongdoing.

The FA have made no change to plans regarding the team's participation in the tournament this summer.

The FA are now talking to Government officials about possible extra measures being put in place to make sure travelling supporters remain safe.

The warnings to travellers could further depress sales of World Cup tickets to Britons, which had already been hit by fears that Russian hooligans were planning to confront England fans. So now they want to "punish" us with a World Cup boycott.

With Gareth Southgate due to name his squad later today for this month's friendlies against Holland and Italy, the FA finally issued a public statement on Wednesday on the escalating crisis against a backdrop of calls in some quarters for the England team to boycott the World Cup. According to The Week, on Sky News' Twitter poll, 44% of the 7,300 voters were saying that World Cup boycott would "achieve nothing". The rules dictate that "all participating member associations undertake to play all of their matches until eliminated from the Fifa World Cup".
