Russia, England could be thrown out of Euro 2016
UEFA has threatened to kick Russia and England out of the Euro 2016 due to violence by their fans amid an opening match.
The Saturday encounter which ended 1-1 in Marseille, France, brought about continuous battles between the Russians and the English.
In its public “warning,” UEFA expressed “disgust” at the scenes, whose pictures shocked the social media, saying the teams could be thrown out if violence persists.
The incident, marking the worst violence at an international tournament since the 1998 World Cup, left dozens injured.
Targeting Russia but not England
UEFA has launched an investigation into what happened before and after the game and is set to recommend punishment on Tuesday.
FIFA also censured the Russian and English “idiotic troublemakers” for creating “shameful scenes.”
UEFA is opening a disciplinary case against Russian fans over crowd disturbances with England escaping a similar probe.
