UEFA have handed England a two-match ban after fans without tickets caused violent scenes at the Euro Final at Wembley in July.

A 100,000 Euro fine has been dished out alongside the ban, with England also facing a mark against their name in regards to hosting future tournaments.

England fans were seen to be forcing their way inside the ground, harming stewards and members of the public in the process.

Reports of drug use and public urination were also vocalised. 

Clashes with Hungary fans at the World Cup Qualifier has also raised eyebrows over safety of fans at Wembley, and around England fans as a whole.

Hungary fans continuously fought with police inside the ground, with suspicion that Polish fans had also joined the Hungary crowds in order to cause extra trouble.

The FA have further released a statement responding to UEFA, stating: “We condemn the terrible behaviour of the individuals who caused the disgraceful scenes in and around Wembley Stadium at the UEFA EURO 2020 Final, and we deeply regret that some of them were able to enter the stadium.

“We are determined that this can never be repeated, so we have commissioned an independent review, led by Baroness Casey, to report on the circumstances involved.

“We continue to work with the relevant authorities in support of their efforts to take action against those responsible and hold them to account.”
