The Football Association have imposed a lifetime ban on two England fans after they made Nazi gestures in a game in Germany.

The friendly game that was played in Dortmund was disrupted by some unruly act of some fans at the stadium.

A large part of the fans opted to sing about WW2 instead of the German anthem.
The two fans that have been banned by the England Supporters Travel Club will no longer be able to attend away game.

One of the fans that have been banned was seen observing a Nazi salute, while the other made an impression of Adolf Hitler and other offensive gestures towards the fans of Germany.

The two banned fans have now joined a list of 27 members who have been handed varying degrees of punishment from the ESTC. Other cases are still pending, while some were given a handwritten warning.

This comes after the FA revealed that they are working with the police to implement football ban that would also affect local games for some unruly supporters.

Greg Clarke, the chairman of the FA condemned the act which he tagged as disrespectful, disappointing and inappropriate. The body has reiterated its stand to deal with issues like this and from all indication, it seems to be working.

This ban is made more effective by the fact tickets for away games can only be obtained at the ESTC before they can be retrieved in the host country.

Stern Test Against Scotland

England has been given a 4,761 ticket allocation for their World Cup qualifier game against Scotland at Hampden Park as they look to consolidate their hold on the top of the log.

A stern warning has been issued to travelling supporters who will be going to Glasgow and Scottish police have also imposed a ban on open space drinking during the duration of the game.
