England passport numbers published before Ecuador game

England team sheet

The passport numbers of England's World Cup squad have been published in a security breach in Miami.

An hour before England's 2-2 friendly draw against Ecuador, the numbers were mistakenly included in team sheets handed out in the press box.

Within minutes, the passport numbers of both sides playing at the Sun Life Stadium were published on social media.

"It is a matter for the match organisers," said a Football Association spokesman.

"Team sheets are their responsibility."

In a further security breach, the signatures of Frank Lampard, who signed off the list, and director of England team operations Michelle Farrar were also published.
