Players at the World Cup face FIFA disciplinary action for revealing any slogan or image on their undershirts.

Football's rules-making panel modified the law on Saturday, and agreed it will take effect on June 1.

The panel, known as IFAB, said breaking the rule is not a yellow-card offense, though players can be disciplined by competition organizers.

Also, the panel rejected UEFA's proposal to remove red cards from the so-called "triple punishment" for penalty-area fouls which deny a goal-scoring opportunity.

IFAB's new football and technical advisory panels will now discuss the issue, and oversee trials of "sin bins" where players are sidelined for several minutes instead of getting a yellow card.

IFAB approved head coverings for male and female players, and restated opposition to video replay in decision-making.
