UEFA charge England for fan behavior
UEFA opened a disciplinary case against the English Football Association on Sunday after some fans tried to invade the pitch during the team’s 3-2 victory over Sweden.
UEFA said in a statement Sunday the attempted invasion of the field at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev on Friday was ”inappropriate behavior.”
Fans celebrating an England goal were seen running from the stands on to the track circling the pitch before being intercepted by stewards.
UEFA’s control and disciplinary body will hear the case on Wednesday. England is likely to get a small financial penalty.
