Russia given suspended disqualification from Euro 2016



Russia will be disqualified from Euro 2016 if there is further crowd trouble at their remaining tournament matches. Uefa, European football’s governing body, has given Russia a suspended disqualification and a 150,000 euro fine for disorder in the game against England in Marseille. Russia were charged over fan racism and fireworks being set off at the game. Groups of Russia fans are being deported from France after repeated scenes of violence at Euro 2016.

The suspended disqualification and fine only relate to incidents that happened inside the stadium. The decision is open to appeal. Thirty-five people have been injured – most of them England fans and four seriously – while a total of 20 people were arrested after three days of disorder in Marseille.
