FIFA will not take any action regarding the incident between Kamil Glik and Kyle Walker during Poland’s match against England on September 8 due to “insufficient evidence”.

The players clashed after the half-time whistle, with Glik appearing to pinch Walker on the neck.

Harry Magurie was then involved in the confrontation, with the referee eventually cautioning the Manchester United captain and Glik, in what is understood to be a separate incident.

England captain Harry Kane said after the match: “Allegedly it was something that was done, not said. We haven’t had the chance to look at the footage and talk to the lad.”

Poland media officer and team manager Jakub Kwiatkowski, however, later said the accusation against Glik was false: “The English FA said there had been a racist remark made but Glik says that is completely not true.

“I know the players and they have not done that and nor would they. We completely deny any allegations of wrongdoing.”

FIFA looked into the incident but found insufficient evidence to open a case.
