David Beckham has played down his confrontation with a fan in the England dressing room, but FIFA says World Cup stadium security will be tightened.

The England fan eluded security and made it into the team's changing room after the 0-0 draw against Algeria on Friday, and the Football Association complained to FIFA. Ten minutes earlier, Princes William and Harry were in there talking to the players.

Beckham says the fan casually walked in, said something derogatory to him and walked out again. There was no scuffle or aggression. FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot says that "security will be tightened so this never happens again."
