FIFA also imposes penalties on Russia after the invasion of Ukraine
With growing pressure to impose sanctions on Russia following the invasion of Ukraine, FIFA agreed on a series of measures that would take effect for Russia's play-off in next month's World Cup.

The measures include banning her name, flag and anthem in her matches, but not completely banning her team, which is demanded by her opponents.

Three countries involved in the World Cup - Poland, Sweden and the Czech Republic - have all refused to play against Russia as a protest against the Russian invasion of neighboring Ukraine.

Several key players, including Poland's Robert Lewandowski, FIFA World Player of the Year, have backed the decision to boycott any game involving Russia. These statements, and similar ones from other players, have put great pressure on FIFA to remove Russia from the race.
