Jamie Vardy was pictured wearing a mask of his own face at Leicester City's match against Everton.
The England striker was suspended for the game after being sent off against Stoke on December 17.
Leicester appealed against the decision but it was rejected by the FA.
The Foxes' owners placed thousands of Vardy masks around the King Power Stadium ahead of the Boxing Day match against Everton.
It was a protest against the FA's decision.
And Vardy, who took his seat in the directors' box, joined in by wearing one of the masks.
Vardy is banned for three matches following his sending off.
