UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Scotland, Poland

NYON, Switzerland (AP) UEFA says it has started disciplinary proceedings against Scotland and Poland after a number of rule breaches, including fighting with stewards, during their European Championship qualifier at Hampden Park.

UEFA says the Polish Football Federation faces proceedings for kit infringements with its warm-up bibs, the setting off and throwing of fireworks, the throwing of objects and crowd disturbances which include clashes with stewards.

The Scottish Football Association was cited for insufficient organization, field invasions by supporters and blocked stairways during Thursday’s 2-2 draw.

UEFA said Friday their cases will be dealt with on Oct. 22.

The draw meant that Scotland cannot qualify for Euro 2016.
