Uefa charges Serbia, England as police probe brawl
LONDON (AP) - The Union of European Football Associations (Uefa) opened disciplinary proceedings against both Serbia and England and a police probe was ordered from Belgrade on Wednesday after alleged racist chanting and brawls at an ill-tempered under-21 match.
The Serbian hosts were charged by Uefa with misconduct over the racial abuse its fans allegedly hurled at England players from before kickoff in Krusevac on Tuesday night.
But both federations face action for "improper conduct" over the scuffles that broke out on the pitch between the teams after the match, which England won 1-0 to secure qualification for the 2013 European Under-21 Championship.
The cases will be heard by Uefa's control and disciplinary board on Nov 22.
