England's Football Association said on Sunday its teams will not play any matches against Russia for the foreseeable future to "wholeheartedly condemn the atrocities being committed by the Russian leadership" after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Russia has qualified for the Women's European Championship, which is being hosted by England in June.
Other countries have also announced they will not play matches against Russia. The Czech Republic joined Poland and Sweden on Sunday in refusing to play Russia in 2022 World Cup qualifying next month in response to the invasion.
Russia are set to face Poland on March 24, and the winner of that match is due to host Sweden or the Czech Republic on March 29 for a place at the World Cup in Qatar.
The Czech FA's executive committee said it "unanimously approved a decision that the Czech national team will not in any case play Russia." The FAs of Poland and Sweden made the same decision on Saturday.
On Thursday, FIFA said in a statement that they "hope for rapid cessation of hostilities and peace in Ukraine."
