Cumbrian MP calls on England to boycott World Cup in Russian Federation

EMPICS    
     GLORY The 1936 Olympics in Berlin were exploited by Adolf Hitler to promote Nazi propaganda

Theresa May has said it is "highly likely" that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, warning Moscow it will face action if it does not explain its role.

England's governing Football Association has yet to make any comment on what Britain's worsening political relationship with Russian Federation would mean in terms of the World Cup.

Security details already in place include the provision of bottled water by Federation Internationale de Football Association through its sponsors.

The statement also criticized warnings from UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat about the tournament.

However, the ministry was adamant that such conclusions had been made in haste, saying: "The investigation into [the poisoning of Skripal], which is not only still not complete, but virtually hasn't even started".

England's football team will still go to the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, unless the Football Association are told directly by Government that they are not to attend, Sky Sports News understands. "The UK media outlets are actively repeating calls for a boycott".

Albert Wilson reportedly signs with Dolphins for 3 years, $24 million
With the Allen Robinson news breaking late last night, the Bears are clearly ready to start making some news throughout the day. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network , the Dolphins are set to re-sign defensive back Walt Aikens to a two-year deal.

Mr Farron said: "If Russia is guilty of this appalling crime, on top of the information we now have of their state-sponsored interference in democratic elections in the UK, US and elsewhere then we should boycott the World Cup".

"We want to emphasise once again that such provocative statements that fuel anti-Russian hysteria, only complicate relations between our countries and are a blow to the sport".

But a boycott is considered highly unlikely as it would put the FA on a collision course with global football governing body FIFA, whose regulations insist member national authorities must run the sport in their respective countries without "outside interference" from the government or any other parties.

According to the Mail, the images, which included a young girl in bandages sitting in a wheelchair, outraged Germany manager Joachim Low and defender Joshua Kimmich to such a degree that they "urged politicians to act decisively" regarding the World Cup.

Simonyan also added that the refusal to participate in the World Cup could threaten the relationship between countries.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said it was "highly likely" Russian Federation was responsible for the attack, prompting calls to consider a boycott from British Labour MP John Woodcock.
