The Three Lions prepare for their World Cup qualifier against Ukraine next week when Slovakia head to Wembley on Saturday for a friendly.

FIFA and UEFA have rejected the World Anti-Doping Agency’s out-of-competition drug testing rule and are asking for changes to the procedures.

The WADA rule requires athletes in all sports to give drug testers three months’ notice of their whereabouts for one hour each day of the year. FIFA and UEFA say there are “fundamental differences” between an individual athlete’s training regime and one who spends six days a week at a stadium and is “easy to locate.”

In a statement after Tuesday’s UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Copenhagen, the two groups asked WADA to reconsider the rule “in a spirit of collaboration in the fight against doping.”
