FA will not take action over England pair

The Football Association will not take any action against England pair Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana after reports they visited a strip club while on international duty.

The pair allegedly made the trip a day after a World Cup qualifying win over Scotland and less than three days before a draw in a friendly with Spain.

It is also understood the FA did not tell captain Wayne Rooney to apologise over “inappropriate” pictures of him at a wedding at the team hotel during the same international break.

The Sun newspaper published images it said showed Rooney drunk at a party late on Saturday night – a day after the 3-0 win over Scotland on 11 November.

Rooney “unreservedly” apologised to interim England manager Gareth Southgate after pictures emerged.

The 31-year-old Manchester United striker has since branded reaction to his late-night conduct as “disgraceful” and vowed he is “not finished yet”.

The FA, which is also looking into claims several players were out until late after the Scotland game, has now banned England players from having nights out while on international duty.

It is believed that Liverpool midfielder Henderson, who was captain for the 2-2 draw with Spain at Wembley, and Reds midfielder Lallana, did not break the FA code, which is only guidelines and not rules.
