UEFA has filed a complaint with the Football Association (FA) regarding the England fans’ behavior at the Euro 2020 final.
The Football Association has been charged by UEFA for crowd disturbance during the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy.
UEFA has punished the Football Association with causing crowd unrest outside Wembley Stadium before the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy on Sunday.
The FA has been charged by UEFA with four distinct offenses after the event at the national stadium was marred by pandemonium.
Before England’s first-ever European Championship match, fans pushed their way into the stadium and battled with one other and officials.
They also raced into the outer area of Wembley Stadium, breaching security cordons.
An investigation has now been launched by UEFA.
“Disciplinary proceedings have been launched following the UEFA EURO 2020 final match between the national teams of Italy and England (1-1, Italy won 3-2 on penalties), which took place on July 11 at Wembley Stadium in London,” according to a statement from UEFA.
“The English Football Association is facing charges:
• Invasion of the field of play by supporters – UEFA Disciplinary Regulations Article 16(2)(a) (DR) • Objects thrown by supporters – Article 16(2)(b) DR • Disturbance during the national anthem caused by its supporters – Article 16(2)(g) DR • Supporters lighting a fireworks display – Article 16(2)(c) DR
“The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) will investigate the situation in due time.
“A UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has been appointed separately, in accordance with Article 31(4) DR, to conduct a disciplinary investigation into actions involving supporters that happened inside and outside the stadium.
“Information on this subject will be made available as soon as it becomes available.”
“These people should be ashamed of themselves,” the Metropolitan Police Federation remarked.
“They aren’t fans,” says the narrator. They’re hoodlums. We send our best wishes to our injured colleagues.”
“We will do a complete review and we will engage with the police to catch anyone involved and make sure we can avoid it ever happening again,” Football Association chief executive Mark Bullingham told BBC Radio Four’s Today programme.
“Anyone detected will, without a doubt, be banned, and appropriate action will be taken against them.”
In their first major tournament final since 1966, England was defeated by Italy in a penalty shootout.
The Three Lions took the lead in the second minute thanks to Luke Shaw’s first international goal, which elicited ecstatic celebrations across the country.
However, in the second half, Leonardo Bonucci equalized, and the game continued. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
