FIFA has "strongly rebuked" comments made by Diego Maradona in the wake of England's victory over Colombia in the last 16 of the World Cup.
The world football governing body has hit back at the remarks, though, insisting that there is no case to answer.
"Following comments made by Diego Armando Maradona in relation to Tuesday's round of 16 game, Colombia v England, FIFA strongly rebukes the criticism of the performance of the match officials which it considers to have been positive in a tough and highly emotional match," the statement read.
"Furthermore, it also considers the additional comments and insinuations made as being entirely inappropriate and completely unfounded.
"At a time when FIFA is doing everything within its power to ensure principles of fair play, integrity and respect are at the forefront of this World Cup and how the organisation is now run, FIFA is extremely sorry to read such declarations from a player who has written the history of our game."
Maradona, who famously knocked England out of the 1986 World Cup with the use of his hand, was pictured in a Colombia top prior to the match in the Russian capital.
