He also revealed that the group has come across more than 30 cases of Russian women being "accosted" in the streets by male fans.

Some of them have lost their FAN IDs - the documents required for all spectators to access World Cup stadiums - and been forced to leave the country as a result of such behaviour, he added.

Meanwhile FIFA's head of sustainability and diversity, Federico Addiechi, defended differing sanctions, such as 70,000 Swiss francs (70,000 dollars) for Croatia not using official drinks during a match and 10,000 francs for Mexico due to their fans' homophobic chanting.

France will take part in the World Cup final.

"The only thing we have really flagged up which has been significant has been the level of sexism which has been encountered by some women, often Russian women who have been confronted by fans", he said.

Barcelona Rule Out Eden Hazard Swoop, Chelsea Star Too Expensive
Without Champions League football and the issues with the manager, Belgian winger Eden Hazard would want to move away from the club.

He added that Federation Internationale de Football Association was not yet being "proactive" about the policy but would "take action against things that are wrong".

The "hot female fan" image is widespread in coverage of the World Cup.

However it is unclear whether Russia's host broadcasters have been warned about their habit of picking out pretty faces in the crowd.

Despite previous fears that fans would be targeted with homophobia and racism, the treatment of women has become the focus after a range of female reporters were grabbed or kissed on air, according to the Fare Network.

Powar, however, said he believes football could be more joined-up in how it deals with repeat offenders, such as Croatian fans and their nationalist banners and the homophobic chants popular with fans from Mexico and some South American teams.
