Dortmund and England winger Sancho, along with Marcus Thuram, Achraf Hakimi and Weston McKennie all could have faced sanctions for their reactions to George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

Sancho showed a T shirt with the message “Justice for Greorge Floyd” after scoring goal for Borussia Dortmund, while Thuram knelt after scoring for Borussia Monchengladbach and Schalke’s McKennie wore an armband with “justice for George” on it.

Sancho was shown a yellow card which will not be annulled as it was given for him removing his shirt.

“The committee also wants to maintain this line in the event of renewed anti-racism campaigns on the occasion of the violent death of George Floyd on the coming match days,” read a DFB statement.

“I expressly welcome the far-sighted decision of the DFB Control Committee and am very happy about it,” said DFB President Fritz Keller in the message.

“The association strongly opposes any form of racism, which is why the actions of the players have our respect and understanding.”
