ENGLAND’S Wags have been issued a list of do’s and don’ts to avoid a World Cup crisis in Qatar.
Three Lions chiefs are taking no chances in the strict Gulf state and warned the glamourous group: “You are not above the law.”
They delivered the rules at a secret presentation.
Wags expected to be there, such as Jack Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood, 26, are told to “dress modestly” in public and at stadiums and warned public displays of affection will “not be tolerated”.
They must not drink alcohol or swear in public, play loud music, sing, shout or act “inappropriately” during the call to prayer.
Littering, illegal in Qatar and punishable by a fine of up to £6,000 and a year in jail, is also forbidden.
And they were warned taking selfies outside government buildings would likely lead to police action.
At the meeting before England’s 3-3 draw with Germany last month, FA chiefs urged: “It is important to understand that you and your husband/partner are not above the law here.
“Every order is in place to protect both yourselves and your partner/husband in any case of indiscretion. Fines and prosecution are commonplace.”
England, led by skipper Harry Kane, play their opener at the Khalifa International Stadium in the capital Doha against Iran on November 21.
And the FA is determined to drill the local laws and customs into the Wags.
A source said: “The FA left little room for doubt.
“They have been very clear about the rules and have a responsibility to the players and their families to make sure they are aware of the local laws and customs.
“They cannot — and will not — tolerate any controversy or incident that could and should have been avoided with good planning.
“It is important the Wags understand Qatar is not England and will treat everyone even handedly, irrespective of who they are.”
It is illegal to drink alcohol in Qatar. Swearing or rude gestures can also land the culprit behind bars.
Women must cover their shoulders and avoid wearing short skirts, according to Foreign Office advice.
Sex outside of marriage is outlawed too.
The source added the FA was determined to avoid a repeat of the “World Cup line-up” snap of Wags in Russia in 2018.
Secretly organised by Becky Vardy and her agent Caroline Watt, it came after the FA was assured the women would be anonymous.
