UEFA opens case against Russia but not England after Euro 2016 fan violence
UEFA has expressed its “utter disgust” and opened disciplinary proceedings against Russia for crowd disturbances, racist behaviour by fans and fireworks being set off during the European Championship game against England on Saturday. UEFA has not opened any case against the English Football Association, The Guardian reports.
The control, ethics and disciplinary body will judge the Russia case on Tuesday ahead of their second Euro 2016 Group B match against Slovakia on Wednesday.
UEFA says it will implement “corrective measures” to strengthen security at European Championship stadiums after “segregation issues” at the Stade Velodrome, where the game finished 1-1.
