UEFA open inquiry into England fans after crowd trouble during Euro 2020 semi-final win

UEFA has started disciplinary proceedings against England after their semi-final win against Denmark.

England won 2-1 at Wembley but the game – which went to extra-time – was fraught with controversy.

Someone in the 67,000 strong crowd shone a green laser pen at Denmark’s goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as England captain Harry Kane stepped up to take a penalty.


Schmeichel saved the spot kick but an alert Kane slotted home the rebound.

UEFA cited three charges against England and the supporters:

  • The use of the laser pen
  • A disturbance as national anthems were sung
  • Lighting fireworks in the crowd.

A UEFA spokesperson said:

“The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) in due course.

Meanwhile, England play Italy in the final on Sunday at Wembley.
