England facing charges from UEFA over fan behaviour during win over Denmark

England have been charged by UEFA after a fan shone a laser at the face of Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during Wednesday's Euro 2020 semi-final.

The incident occurred just before Harry Kane was about to take a penalty for England towards the end of the first period of extra-time.

Schmeichel saved the spot-kick but Kane tapped in the rebound to score the decisive goal for Gareth Southgate's side.

UEFA have also charged England for a disturbance caused by their supporters during the national anthems at Wembley, while England have also been hit with a charge after fireworks were lit by supporters in celebration of the win.

A statement from UEFA read: "Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the UEFA EURO 2020 semi-final match between England and Denmark (2-1), played on 7 July at Wembley Stadium, London.

Charges against England :

Use of laser pointer by its supporters - Article 16(2)(d) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR)
Disturbance caused by its supporters during the national anthem - Article 16(2)(g) DR
Lighting of fireworks by its supporters - Article 16(2)(c) DR
The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) in due course."

England are preparing for their first major final since 1966 and will face Italy at Wembley in the decider on Sunday.
