The FA will decide whether to act once it has received Nuno’s observations.

Under current FA regulations, post-match comments that criticise the performance or competence of a match official are permitted unless they imply bias, attack the official’s integrity, are personally offensive, are prolonged, or are particularly unreasonable.
