LONDON (REUTERS) - Uefa has fined England, Poland, Scotland and Lithuania for failing to control their fans in recent European Championship qualifying matches, the governing body for European football said in a statement on Friday.

Poland were fined €40,000 (S$61,600) and Scotland €20,000 for crowd disturbances in their Group D qualifier on Oct 8 in Glasgow.

Scotland's fans invaded the pitch while Polish supporters clashed with stewards and lit fireworks in the 2-2 draw.

Poland's Robert Lewandowski scored a stoppage-time leveller that ended Scotland's hopes of reaching the Euro 2016 Finals.

England were fined €15,000 and Lithuania €30,000 for crowd trouble in their match in Vilnius on Oct 12, which Roy Hodgson's side won 3-0 to finish their group-stage campaign with a 100 per cent record.
