The Football Association is investigating allegations of racist chanting against Rio and Anton Ferdinand from the San Marino game last week, but have found no evidence as of yet.
The FA says it has no reason to doubt media reports of racist chanting, and will continue its investigation.
A FA statement read, “We have made significant progress following the hooliganism that blighted the national team in 1998 and 2000. We must continue to maintain this hard work.”
