Uefa threaten to ban England, Russia, over violence

UEFA have threatened to ban England and Russia from Euro 2016 if fans of both countries do not shun further violence following their brutal fight on Saturday

England and Russia last night at the Stade Vélodrome in the ongoing Euro 2016 hosted by France played out a score draw.

Their fans also engaged in a battle, hurling beer bottles and chairs and drawing volleys of tear gas from riot police. At least 35 people were said to sustain serious injury.

UEFA’s executive committee in a statement on Sunday told the football associations of both countries that their teams could face further sanctions — including potential disqualification from the tournament — if their fans were involved in a repeat of the scenes that marred their fixture in Marseille on Saturday.

The statement reads in part: “UEFA expresses its utter disgust for the violent clashes that occurred in the city center of Marseille, and its serious concern for the incidents at the end of the match inside Stade Velodrome.

“This kind of behavior is totally unacceptable and has no place in football.”
