German Football Association Against Boycott of World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation

The World Cup runs from June 14 to July 15 and Gareth Southgate's England are set to face Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the group stage. While former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg said: "You can't carry on sending our teams as normal to the World Cup if it is proven that this was a state-directed attack".

British officials have suggested a possible boycott of next summer's tournament in Russia after the March 4 poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter with a military-grade nerve agent.

During Commons exchanges, Labour's Stephen Kinnock asked if she shared the concern that "holding the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer could be perceived as a global vindication of Mr Putin's regime, and, if so, would she be making representations to Fifa to explore the possibility of postponing the World Cup until 2019 and holding it in a more appropriate host country or countries?"

There have been increased calls for England to boycott the World Cup for fear the team would be putting themselves in harm's way were they to attend.

Prime Minister Theresa May has demanded answers from Russian Federation over the nerve poisoning and is considering possible responses, which believe might include some sort of boycott at this year's World Cup.

The FA took to social media to say it would "continue to work closely with the UK Government and relevant authorities regarding our participation in this summer's FIFA World Cup and the Women's World Cup qualifier in June".

Mrs May also expelled 23 Russian diplomats from the United Kingdom in retaliation for attack.

"Such provocative stories, which fan anti-Russian hysteria, only complicate relations between our countries and strike a blow against world sport", it added.

"As we expected, the English are especially active in this. Now the British media are actively calling for a boycott of the upcoming World Cup".

The vice-president of the Russian Football Union, Nikita Simonyan, also commented on the matter, saying that the poisoning incident should not affect the hosting of the World Cup in Russia.

The Telegraph reports that a boycott would "risk breaching Fifa's tournament regulations".
