Walker used his Twitter account to apologise after pictures of the Tottenham defender inhaling the legal, but potentially dangerous, nitrous oxide through a balloon appeared in newspapers over the weekend.

In a statement on their website the FA said: "Kyle Walker has expressed his regret for an error of judgement when inhaling Nitrous Oxide earlier this year.

"The FA and the England manager have spoken to Kyle about the matter and he has assured us it will not happen again.

"Inhaling Nitrous Oxide is not illegal, but we recognise the associated dangers.

"Kyle has accepted this mistake. He will not face any action under the England Player Code of Conduct.

"The FA and England manager will not be making any further comment on this matter and will be focusing their full attention on Tuesday's match with Ukraine."
