July 8 – UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England following the Euro 2020 semi-final match between England and Denmark at Wembley last night.
UEFA is investigating three incidents. Just before the penalty taken by England captain Harry Kane, a fan shone a laser pointer at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Before that, at the beginning of the match, some England fans had booed Denmark’s national anthem. England supporters also charged with the “lighting of fireworks” during the game.
UEFA listed the charges as:
- Use of laser pointer by its supporters – Article 16(2)(d) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR)
- Disturbance caused by its supporters during the national anthem – Article 16(2)(g) DR
- Lighting of fireworks by its supporters – Article 16(2)(c) DR
UEFA said “the case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) in due course.”
