ENGLISH FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION LOGO STORY: The English Football Association (FA) has launched an advertising campaign with the slogan "Don't Be An Idiot" ahead of next week's Nations League finals in a bid to curb anti-social behaviour.

With around 18,000 fans expected to make the trip to Portugal for the finals, the FA is sending out the message in a bid to end "embarrassing" scenes that have marred some recent England away matches.

While there have been less instances of violent behaviour than in the past, 127 members of the England Supporters Travel Club (ESTC) have been suspended in the last five years, many though alcohol related incidents.

The video, which also includes an appeal from England manager Gareth Southgate, highlights the reaction of people in everyday life to the sort of behaviour that sometimes occurs around soccer matches.

England face the Netherlands in Guimares on June 6th with the final in Porto three days later.
