The Football Association yesterday confirmed they have been unable to find evidence that England fans chanted racist abuse at Rio and Anton Ferdinand during the World Cup qualifier against San Marino. Anti-racism group FARE had reported England to FIFA over the alleged singing of an abusive song directed at the Ferdinand brothers during England's 8-0 win in Serravalle.

But FA director of communications Adrian Bevington told Sky Sports News: “We haven’t been able to find or identify any individuals chanting but I want to make clear I am not disputing of refuting that the individuals who reported this heard it.”
