Federation Internationale de Football Association launches investigation into fans’ chants of ‘no surrender’

Speaking before yesterday's match between Croatia and England about FIFA's anti-discrimination program in Russian Federation, diversity boss Federico Addiechi said eliminating those type of shots is part of the "natural evolution" of broadcasts.

"FIFA will take action against things that are wrong - we've done it with individual broadcasters".

Anti-discrimination group Fare Network, which has been monitoring cases of racial abuse and sexism during the World Cup, says it has documented more than 30 cases of female fans being accosted on the streets and female reporters being grabbed or kissed on the streets.

The Argentine referee will blow the final whistle at Luzhniki Stadium on a tournament he began there by handling the opening game, when Russian Federation beat Saudi Arabia 5-0.

Argentinian referee Nestor Pitana, along with his assistants Hernan Maidana and Juan Pablo Belatti, will officiate the Final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ between France and Croatia on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The Russian FA's diversity officer Alexey Smertin, the former Chelsea midfielder, said FAN-IDs - which are similar to the identification cards Margaret Thatcher proposed as a solution to English hooliganism in the 1980s - will be used in domestic football in Russia from next season.

Anti-discrimination group Fare Network has been working to monitor discriminatory behaviour around World Cup games.

Crowd shots like this pass the Federation Internationale de Football Association test.

Photographic agency Getty Images had also been caught up in a sexism storm after publishing a gallery of exclusively young women called "the hottest fans at the World Cup".
