FA vows to 'protect' players and coaches

The Football Association said it would protect players and staff involved in a brawl in Serbia, following reports that Serbian police were pressing charges against several England players and coaches for "acts of violence".

The Football Association can confirm it has not received any formal notification of any charges filed by the Serbian authorities.

We have not been made aware of any of the names of individuals connected with these charges and we therefore await further details and formal communication on these matters.

The FA reiterates its position of full support for all players and staff caught up in the appalling scenes in Serbia two weeks ago.

We want to reassure those concerned that we are committed to doing everything necessary to protect them.
