Croatia striker Ivica Olic has tested positive for a banned substance at the European Championship but will be allowed to continue playing.
Olic, 24, tested for methylpresnisolone after the 2-2 draw with France on 17 June, when he was used as a sub.
But Uefa's control and disciplinary body ruled the player was not at fault and can play against England on Monday.
The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) has been fined 4,335 for not following the correct anti-doping procedures.
Olic suffered a rib injury during a Euro 2004 warm-up game against Denmark on 5 June and was given a pain-killing which contained methylpresnisolone.
