The FA have charged Carlton Cole with improper conduct over the striker's Twitter comments about Ghana fans attending the England friendly.
The West Ham player referred to the large numbers of Ghana fans at Wembley Stadium last month in comments he later deleted.
He tweeted: "Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was a trap! Hahahaha.
"The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St. George's flag!"
On Friday, the FA confirmed the charge saying in a statement: "The FA has charged West Ham United's Carlton Cole with improper conduct relating to media comments.
"The charge relates to comments made on Twitter during the England v Ghana fixture on Tuesday 29 March 2011."
