The Football League's digital arm has apologised after an email was sent to Cardiff City and Newport County fans urging them to support England.

The email, on behalf of the English Football Association, encouraged fans to join a scheme offering priority tickets for Wembley games.

It was sent to fans who had opted to receive marketing emails.

FL Interactive apologised, saying: "The overwhelming majority of each club's fanbase will clearly follow Wales".
