UEFA charged English FA over Euro 2020 final Incidence
UEFA has launched disciplinary action against the FA for the conduct of England fans at Wembley on Sunday during the Euro 2020 final, with an inspector also appointed to review events inside and outside the stadium.
It was reported earlier on Tuesday that 5,000 ticketless hooligans gained entry to the stadium for the showcase match, forcing their way through broken gates and terraces which led to ugly scenes on the concourses.
The charges facing the Football Association relate to invasion of the field of play by supporters, throwing of objects by supporters, disturbance caused by supporters during the national anthem and lighting of a firework by supporters.
A UEFA statement added: ‘Separately, and in accordance with Article 31(4) DR, a UEFA ethics and disciplinary inspector has been appointed to conduct a disciplinary investigation into events involving supporters which occurred inside and around the stadium.’
