Kyle Walker will escape being fined his England match fee despite seeing red in Saturday's 1-0 win in Iceland.
Walker became the first Three Lions star to be sent off since Raheem Sterling in 2014 - in what was the Manchester City defender's first international appearance in 18 months.
The 30-year-old was shown a second yellow card for a desperate lunge on Arnor Traustason on 70 minutes with the game goalless.
Walker is now suspended for tomorrow night's Nations League clash with Denmark in Copenhagen, but will not be stripped of his appearance fee of around £1,500 that will still be donated to charity.
Walker apologised to his team-mates afterwards and admitted he took 'full blame' for his moment of madness that boss Gareth Southgate admitted had put his side in a "really difficult situation".
Walker had insisted in the build up he wouldn't blow his England reprieve after being brought in from the cold by Southgate.
But he continues to test the patience of Southgate and has now been left hoping it does not mark the end of his international career.
He faces a tough task to get back into the side as he competes for a right-back spot with Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold and Atletico Madrid's Kieran Trippier.
Southgate will hold talks with Walker and insists he can still have a future with the Three Lions, but has warned his stars to improve their discipline and forget about picking up more red cards in the future.
He said: "He knows he made an error that shouldn't have happened and he's been very open and honest about holding his hands up to that.
"He's still a very experienced player. I am not going to rule him out in the long term on that one moment.

"It put us in a really difficult situation and the obvious lessons are the red card. You can't make challenges like that.
"It's the first time we've had a red card in the four years (he's been in charge) and it makes the game so difficult, when you're in the ascendancy, it shifts the momentum and it could have cost us the game on the night.
"We got away with it, but it's something all of the players, it's a good way to learn, to still win the game but we have to hammer those points home because it's critical."
