A STARK poster warns of the risks of domestic violence if England lose their World Cup match.

The image, released by the National Centre for Domestic Violence, shows a woman's face bleeding, with the blood forming a St George's cross along her lips and between her nose and chin.

The caption with the picture, shared on social media, reads: "If England get beaten, so will she.

"Domestic Violence increases 26% when #England play. 38% if they lose."
