The Football Association and the Ferdinand brothers led a wave of angry reaction tonight to UEFA's fine for Serbia.
There can little doubt over whether Serbia should and will be punished; but it is the level of punishment from UEFA that is important.
UEFA has announced it is to instigate proceedings against England and Serbia following the side's U21's match on Tuesday night.
The Serbian government has approved an EU-brokered deal to normalise ties with Kosovo according to Associated Press.
Kosovo broke away from Serbia in 2008 but Belgrade doesn't recognise it as an independent state.
The deal could pave the way for the two countries to apply to join the European Union.
Belgrade emergency hospital spokeswoman Nada Macura said that after the shooting spree, the 60-year-old man had tried to kill himself and his wife, they were both severely injured. Another person was also injured.
Villagers told Serbian reporters the man had first killed his son before leaving the house and shooting his neighbours, some of whom were still asleep.
Serbia's health officials say 13 people have been killed after a man went on a shooting spree in a village near Belgrade.
Belgrade emergency hospital spokeswoman Nada Macura said the 60-year-old man killed six men, six women and a child.
The killings occurred in the village of Velika Ivanca, thirty miles southeast of Belgrade.
A health official in Serbia says a man has shot and killed 13 people, including six women and one child, the Associated Press report.
– UEFA statement
Having reviewed the motivated decisions for the sanctions imposed in this specific case... the UEFA disciplinary inspector felt it necessary to immediately confirm his intention to appeal on UEFA's behalf.
The English FA criticised UEFA for not sending a "strong enough message" on racism after the Serbia FA was fined 80,000 euros ($104,700) by UEFA and told it must stage its next Under-21 home match behind closed doors.
Its players and fans were found guilty of improper conduct over a brawl that followed Serbia's Under-21 match against England in October, amid accusations that some England players had suffered racial abuse.
UEFA has the right to appeal against decisions made by its own disciplinary committee and to ask for tougher sanctions if it considers they are too lenient.
UEFA has appealed against the sanctions that its own control and disciplinary body imposed on Serbia and England for incidents in an Under-21 match in October.
The chairman of the Kick It Out anti-racism campaign Lord Herman Ouseley has told ITV News that Serbia "should have been thrown out" of the U-21 European Championship tournament to ensure racist chanting does not happen again.
