FA launch formal complaint following security breach
The Football Association have formally complained to FIFA after an angry England fan barged his way into the Three Lions' dressing room in Cape Town not long after Prince William and Prince Harry had left.
England were booed off following their 0-0 draw with Algeria at the Green Point Stadium that leaves their World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.
And one supporter was so angry he evaded security to make his feelings known to a startled dressing room, where players were getting changed and a number of backroom staff were present - including former skipper David Beckham, who has been a constant presence since England's arrival in South Africa.
The intruder was eventually hustled away by England's own security staff at the end of an awful evening.
Prince William is president of the FA and decided to watch the game with his brother after arriving in the country following a visit to an orphanage in Lesotho.
The princes will host a reception in Johannesburg for FIFA officials to support England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup.
And the FA are in no doubt where the responsibility lay.
"A fan got in past FIFA security," said an FA spokesman.
"We have formally complained to FIFA after the game and will follow it up in writing.
"This is not acceptable and thankfully no serious harm was done."
With in excess of 25,000 supporters travelling to witness the team's dismal performances so far, the FA will want to ensure security is watertight when England head to Port Elizabeth for Wednesday's do-or-die encounter with Slovenia.
If England win, they will book a place in the last 16. Anything less and the Three Lions will almost certainly be booking an early flight home, which is bound to lead to more frustration and calls for manager Fabio Capello to resign.
