Saido Berahino will miss Tuesday's under-21 Euro 2015 qualifier after being booked paying tribute to his late father.
The West Brom striker scored twice in the 3-0 win over Finland, and after netting the first he revealed a t-shirt with "RIP love u dad" written on it, which earned him a yellow card.
Berahino's father was one of an estimated 300,000 to lose their lives in a 12-year civil war in his native Burundi between 1993 and 2005.
Any player displaying a message on a t-shirt is automatically cautioned in a bid to stop players showing messages from sponsors or displaying political or religious messages.
The rule is often criticised by many in the world of football, and Young Lions manager Gareth Southgate hopes he won't rue Berahino's decision to wear the shirt but admitted the striker did apologise.
He said: "I hadn’t realised he had been booked until he came and apologised at half-time. I couldn’t quite work out what he was apologising for.
"The rules are there and again this is something we have got to learn. Hopefully it won't be too costly for us."
He added: "I think it was a personal thing he did it for, but had I known I would not have let him go out with that on his shirt."
The 20-year old has been in blistering form so far this season, notching 12 goals in 13 games for club and country.
