Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Football Association following various incidents at the Euro 2020 final.

The charges against the FA relate to a person invading the pitch, objects being thrown by supporters, booing of the Italian national anthem and the lighting of a firework.

The final was marred by numerous incidents at Wembley, including people gaining access to the stadium despite not having a ticket.

Video footage from the stadium showed numerous people forcing their way inside the ground via a disabled entrance.

  • Wembley suffered numerous security breaches

England lost the final 3-2 on a penalty shootout after the game ended 1-1 following extra-time.

The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB).

There will also be an additional investigation into the events, which took place inside and outside of the stadium on the day.

An FA spokesperson previously said: “The behaviour of the people who illegally forced their way into the stadium was unacceptable, dangerous and showed total disregard for the safety and security protocols in place.

“No steward or security staff should be subjected to this type of behaviour and we thank them for their support on the night.”
