England bans player tweets

LONDON -- England's players have been banned from tweeting about matches for 24 hours before the game.

In a new disciplinary code, the FA also tells players messages on Twitter about "the opposition, management or individuals could all result in disciplinary action."

England defender Ashley Cole is facing an FA fine because of a vulgar tweet.

The England team code of conduct spells out how players can be stripped of the captaincy if they are deemed to fail as a "role model," highlighting how the job carries "expectation and responsibility."

John Terry was stripped of the captaincy twice, first following an alleged extramarital affair and before his high-profile racism case.

Players have also been told to only spend a "sensible" amount of time playing computer games while on duty for England.
