The Football Association has announced England will not play Russia in any fixtures for the foreseeable future.

The news comes after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and heightened tensions.

In a statement released on Sunday evening, The FA said: "Out of solidarity with the Ukraine and to wholeheartedly condemn the atrocities being committed by the Russian leadership, The FA can confirm that we won't play against Russia in any international fixtures for the foreseeable future.

"This includes any potential match at any level of senior, age group or para football."

FIFA has also announced that Russia must play ‘home’ matches on neutral territory with no fans, flag or anthem and under the name ‘Football Union of Russia (RFU)’ until further notice.

In a statement, FIFA said: “The bureau of the FIFA council has unanimously decided to take immediate first measures, in line with recommendations from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and that will be applicable until further notice:

“No international competition shall be played on the territory of Russia, with ‘home’ matches being played on neutral territory and without spectators;

“The member association representing Russia shall participate in any competition under the name ‘Football Union of Russia (RFU)’ and not ‘Russia’;

“No flag or anthem of Russia will be used in matches where teams from the Football Union of Russia participate.”

"FIFA will continue its ongoing dialogue ... to determine any additional measures or sanctions including a potential exclusion from competitions, that shall be applied in the near future should the situation not be improving rapidly.”

The statement comes after the football associations of Poland, Sweden and the Czech Republic refused to play against Russia in upcoming games

Russia has also been stripped of the Champions League final, taking place in May, and September’s Formula One Russian Grand Prix.
