England given stadium ban after EURO 2020 Final

England have been punished by UEFA after the chaos at Wembley Stadium for the EURO 2020 Final against Italy this summer.

Fans without tickets forced their way into the stadium for the Final between the Three Lions and the Azzurri and England must now play their next UEFA match behind closed doors.

UEFA had investigators looking at the England fans’ behaviour and the ‘ineffective security operation’ at Wembley for the Final of the European Championship in July.

Ticketless fans managed to force their way into the national stadium, creating chaos by fighting stewards and police on July 11.

Sky Sport Italia reports the UEFA Control, Ethics and Discipline Body has punished the English FA with two games behind closed doors. The second of the two games have been suspended.

In addition, the FA has been ‘fined €100,000 for the disturbances during the EURO 2020 Final’.

Roberto Mancini’s Italy won the Final on penalties and lifted the European Championship for the second time in history.

    I think England got away lightly. Unbelievably, the racists remarks were not punished.

    Punish them for racist comments made online?

    LOL.

    I think punishing them for things in their control is sufficient enough. Not for things they have no control of.
