Alleged racist chanting during Russia v France to be investigated by Fifa


Paul Pogba scored and assisted a goal for France during the win against Russia

Fifa has started “disciplinary proceedings” against the Russian Football Union for alleged racist chanting aimed at French players when the two countries played in March.

Russia, who will host the 2018 World Cup this summer, lost the home friendly 3-1 in St Petersburg.

France’s goals came from striker Kylian Mbappe, who scored twice, and midfielder Paul Pogba.

Fifa added it had “no further comment at this stage”.
