UEFA is expected to impose heavy sanctions later today if their control and disciplinary body find Serbia guilty over a racist chanting charge from the clash with the England Under-21s in October.

The Serbian FA, along with the English FA, also face a charge of failure to control their players in the ugly scenes in Krusevac.

Tempers flared in the aftermath of the 1-0 win for Stuart Pearce's side, which put the team through to next year's European Championships.
