England captain John Terry accused Ivan Klasnic of spitting at him during Wednesday's 5-1 victory against Croatia at Wembley.
The win ensured Fabio Capello's side would be playing in next summer's World Cup Finals in South Africa, but the actions of Klasnic, who is on loan at Bolton Wanderers from Nantes, marred the evening for Terry.
The Chelsea star said after the rout: "It isn't a nice situation. He came on frustrated. He's the first person who's ever spat at me.
"It's one of those things but let's not let it ruin a massive night for us."
Of England's display, Terry added: "Let's not forget it's taken us a year or so to get to this level.
"We still want to progress and we have a lot of improvements to make in this squad.
"This is where we want to be, competing at this level and at this standard."
