England football manager Roy Hodgson has said he is happy for his players to decide themselves whether or not they bring their wives or girlfriends to Brazil.
The presence of England player's partners, or WAGS as they are more commonly known, at major tournaments has often been an issue under previous managers, with Fabio Capello having a notoriously hard line on the matter.
England's World Cup campaign in Germany eight years ago was overshadowed by the presence of the likes of Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney, among others.
Hodgson said, "When it comes to Brazil, we haven't made any hard and fast rules." but a decision will be made at a team meeting next wee.
A book containing the 13 original laws of football has taken its place alongside the Magna Carta, the works of Shakespeare and Captain Scott's diary at a new display at the British Library to mark the 150th anniversary of the Football Association.
The 1863 FA Minute Book, valued at £2.5 million, records the formation of the Football Association, the creation of the FA Cup and details of the first international fixture, along with the rules that spawned the world's most popular game.
The display in London also includes a 1930s guide to referees, which includes 20 diagrams explaining the offside rule, an early 20th century book on the "football temperament" and a pocket rulebook for novice spectators.
FA chairman Greg Dyke, though, underlined the value of the oldest exhibit, saying: “The importance of the 1863 FA Minute Book cannot be underestimated. Without it, quite simply, the world would be without its most popular sport."
An anti-racism group has filed a complaint to FIFA over alleged racist chanting towards Rio and Anton Ferdinand by a section of England football fans during last week's World Cup qualifier against San Marino.
The group, Football Against Racism in Europe, filed the complaint after Friday's 8-0 victory in Serraville.
Rio Ferdinand pulled out of the squad because the fixture apparently clashed with his training programme.
It was the first time the Manchester United defender had been selected for the national team since his brother's high-profile racism court battle with former England captain John Terry.
