England given UEFA ban after Euro 2020 final disorder

England have been ordered to play their next home UEFA competition match behind closed doors, with a further match suspended, in relation to the disorder at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, UEFA has announced.

The showpiece game between England and Italy on July 11 was marred by chaotic and ugly scenes before, during and after it, with some ticketless supporters forcing their way through security cordons and gaining entry to the stadium.

Tournament organisers UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings against the Football Association on August 3 and issued sanctions on Monday.



In addition to the one-match ban on supporters, a further one-game ban is suspended for a period of two years, UEFA said.

‘ next UEFA competition match will be in the Nations League next June.

The Football Association has also been fined 100,000 euro (around £84,500).

A statement from UEFA read: “Following an investigation conducted by a UEFA ethics and disciplinary inspector regarding the incidents that occurred during the UEFA EURO 2020 final match between the national teams of Italy and England played on July 11, 2021 at Wembley Stadium, London, and the subsequent disciplinary proceedings opened against the English Football Association, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has today taken the following decision:

“To order the English Football Association to play its next two (2) UEFA competition matches as host association behind closed doors, the second of which is suspended for a probationary period of two (2) years from the date of the present decision, for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium.

“To fine the English Football Association €100,000 for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium, for the invasion of the field of play, for throwing of objects and for the disturbances during the national anthems.”

A spokesperson for the FA said: “Although we are disappointed with the verdict, we acknowledge the outcome of this UEFA decision.

“We condemn the terrible behaviour of the individuals who caused the disgraceful scenes in and around Wembley Stadium at the EURO 2020 final, and we deeply regret that some of them were able to enter the stadium.

“We are determined that this can never be repeated, so we have commissioned an independent review, led by Baroness Casey, to report on the circumstances involved. We continue to work with the relevant authorities in support of their efforts to take action against those responsible and hold them to account.”

The Metropolitan Police reported on July 14 that there had been 51 arrests connected to the final – 26 of those were arrested while policing events in Wembley, with 25 arrests following events in central London. Nineteen officers were injured during the course of the policing operation.

The Wembley disorder has been held up by the UK’s football policing lead, Chief Constable Mark Roberts of Cheshire Police, as an example of why rules around alcohol at football matches should not be relaxed.

Conservative MP Tracey Crouch is set to recommend a pilot in League Two and the National League allowing fans to drink in the stands or in their seat as part of her fan-led review.

Her recommendations are expected to be published this week.

Shearer calls out for Man Utd for not amending ‘problem’ from last season

Alan Shearer has claimed that Manchester United are being impacted by them not investing in a new central midfielder during the summer.

The Red Devils were busy over the summer on the transfer front. Jadon Sancho finally joined the club as they paid £73m to sign him from Borussia Dortmund.

They also paid around £34m plus add-ons to bring Raphael Varane to the Premier League from Real Madrid.



Late in the window, Cristiano Ronaldo secured his return to Man United as he re-joined the club from Serie A giants Juventus.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side currently sit sixth in the Premier League. Their form has dipped of late as they are winless in their last three league games.

Before this weekend’s game against Leicester, they were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa and they drew against Everton.

Then late goals from Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka saw the Foxes come from behind to beat United.

, but they did not end up bringing any in.

As reported by the , Shearer suggested that United are experiencing similar troubles to last year:

“That was Manchester United’s problem last season, they didn’t invest in that position and it’s the same again,” Shearer said.

“There’s no one in there to really press and take control from the front. You can’t do that in the Premier League.

“They will always score, Man United, because of the brilliance they have going forward. But you cannot press if you haven’t got that aggression.

“If you don’t know what to do, then you’ve got to sit back and be compact as a team.

“The team that I saw didn’t know whether to go or whether to sit.

“When they did go, it was half-hearted and not as a team.”

“Why’s Donny van de Beek not being given a chance?” Neville said.

“There’s something about that. He’s not been given a chance for 18 months so you’ve got to come to the conclusion that Ole didn’t sign him or he doesn’t fancy him.

“Neither is good for Donny van de Beek so I think he needs to go and play football somewhere [else].”
