England fans are the subject of a Federation Internationale de Football Association investigation after claims were made that "possibly discriminatory" chants were sung during the Three Lions' World Cup semi final loss to Croatia.

We've done it with individual broadcasters.

Its executive director Piara Powar insists sexism has been one of the biggest problems at the ongoing World Cup, according to the Irish Examiner.

Powar said at a news conference on diversity and anti-discrimination that around 15 of these cases involved female World Cup reporters and the others Russian women on the streets.

Before the commencement of the tournament last month, there were fears that homophobia and racism would be the major areas of concern but FARE said sexism has been the main focus of discrimination.

While the crackdown isn't steeped in policy yet - Mr Addiechi said it is "one of the activities that we will have in the future, it's a normal evolution".
