FA fined €30,000 for fans behaviour at England semi-final
UEFA handed down a fine to the FA for the behaviour of England fans during their historic Euro 2020 semi-final win over Denmark.
The Football Association has received a €30,000 fine due to the behaviour of some fans during England's Euro 2020 semi-final win over Denmark.
England came from behind to beat Denmark 2-1 after extra time and reach their first major tournament final since winning the 1966 World Cup.
Yet the win was partially marred by the conduct of some supporters at Wembley on Wednesday.
The FA was charged by UEFA's Control Ethics and Disciplinary Body for fans booing the Danish national anthem, setting off fireworks and for the use of a laser pointer, which was shined in the face of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as he prepared to face Harry Kane's extra-time penalty.
Schmeichel saved Kane's spot-kick but the England captain tucked away the decisive goal on the rebound.
Wembley to host final
Wembley will again host 60,000 fans for the final, with 1,000 supporters from Italy permitted to travel to London for the showpiece.
Italy are in the final of the Euros for the fourth time, with the Azzurri attempting to win the tournament for the first time since 1968.
