London Police have charged two men following crowd violence among Millwall fans that marred Saturday's FA Cup semifinal against Wigan at Wembley Stadium.

One of the men was charged with racially aggravated behavior and the other with breaching bail conditions. Fourteen people - 12 Millwall supporters and two Wigan fans - were arrested inside the stadium during or after the match, and another six Millwall fans were arrested outside Wembley for offenses including affray and racist abuse.

Andy Barnes, detective chief inspector of the Metropolitan Police, says on Tuesday ''a significant investigation is now underway to identify all involved in order to bring them to justice in a swift and robust manner.''

The violence was sparked by Millwall fans turning on each other during the match, which Wigan won 2-0.
