England fans Lithuania TEAMtalk

UEFA has charged England and Lithuania over crowd disturbances at the Euro 2016 qualifier in Vilnius on Monday.

Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the Football Association and the Lithuanian Football Federation (LFF) over the trouble which broke out in a section of the crowd just before kick-off.

The LFF has also been charged over breaches of ticketing rules – it appeared some England fans without tickets gained access to sections reserved for home supporters – and for having blocked stairways.

The cases will be dealt with by the UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body on October 22.
