FIFA ban Dele Alli for one England match over finger gesturePosted By: Patience Rutayisire - On:29/09/2017
The Tottenham midfielder will be unavailable for next week's qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley, after FIFA settled on a one-match ban and a £3,850 fine.
Alli was caught on camera making a middle-finger gesture which he later claimed was directed at team-mate Kyle Walker rather than the referee.
The statement added: "Regardless of whether it was allegedly directed at a team-mate, it did consider such gesture to be offensive and unsporting and therefore it amounted to a violation of art. 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code."
