West Ham striker Carlton Cole has been fined 20,000 pounds and was warned about his tweets regarding England’s friendly with Ghana.

The FA announced the punishment on Wednesday after a hearing with England’s Cole, who had earlier admitted to a charge of improper conduct over the offending comments published on social networking site Twitter.

Cole, while watching England’s 1-1 friendly draw with Ghana on March 29, 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!”

He later deleted the offending remarks but not before they were brought to the attention of the FA, who subsequently charged the 27-year-old.

The punishment is twice as much as Ryan Babel was fined earlier in the season, after the former Liverpool striker tweeted a mocked-up picture of referee Howard Webb in a Manchester United shirt.
