VIDA to escape ban over Ukraine video
FIFA have warned Croatia defender Domagoj Vida over a video he made praising Ukraine
The video, made after Saturday's match against Russia, shows Vida shouting "glory to Ukraine" before the now retired Ognjen Vukojevic, who played alongside Vida for Dynamo Kiev, adds "this win is for Dynamo and Ukraine ... go Croatia."
Tensions have been high since Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
The warning without a match sanction should mean Vida will be available for Croatia's World Cup semi-final clash with England.
