England's players are to part-fund a £50,000 money-back scheme for fans affected by Tuesday night's World Cup postponement in Warsaw.

The Football Association were criticised in some quarters when the Three Lions left the National Stadium in Warsaw following the decision to call off the World Cup qualifier with Poland without acknowledging the fans. Whilst the Polish Football Federation have already confirmed they will refund the cost of tickets for fans unable to attend Wednesday's match, the FA have taken it a step further.

Together with the England Footballers Foundation (EFF), they have agreed to cover the costs of tickets refunds for fans who did remain in the Polish capital.
