FIFA says it opened disciplinary cases against England and Scotland after players from both teams wore armbands with poppy emblems at a World Cup qualifying match.

FIFA did not specify details of the cases, nor would it “speculate on any outcome or provide an estimated timeline.”

The laws of football prohibit religious, political or personal statements at national team matches.

The English and Scottish federations said before the Nov. 11 match at Wembley Stadium they were prepared to face the consequences of defying FIFA rules.

Both federations face being fined.
