A further two officials from England U-21 manager Stuart Pearce's backroom staff are also said to have been charged after the match erupted following the final whistle in Belgrade.

Players and officials from England and Serbia U-21 teams clashed on the pitch after Connor Wickham's late goal secured England's passage to next year's finals.

The unsavoury scenes were played out amid allegations of racist chanting from the stands directed at England Under-21 full-back Danny Rose.
