MOSCOW: FIFA has imposed fines totaling 120,000 Swiss francs ($120,800) on England and Uruguay for players wearing non-approved socks in World Cup quarterfinals. 

FIFA said the English Football Association must pay 70,000 Swiss francs ($70,500) for several players wearing "unauthorized commercial branding" in warmups and during the game against Sweden on Saturday. FIFA said England team officials had been warned to stop breaking World Cup marketing regulations.

Uruguay's federation must pay 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,300) for also defying warnings before one player wore a non-approved brand of socks in its game against France on Friday.

FIFA had previously fined Sweden 70,000 francs for wearing the wrong socks.
