Serbia fined €80,000 for England violence



Serbia were fined €80,000 on Thursday and ordered to play their next Under-21 international behind closed doors as Uefa handed out a range of sanctions following October's violent European qualifier against England.

Two of Serbia's coaching staff and four players were handed suspensions while two England players were also banned.

In chaotic scenes at the October 21 game in Krusevac, England defender Danny Rose was sent off for kicking the ball away in response to what he said was monkey chanting and physical provocation.

Scuffles also broke out between players, coaches and supporters at the end of the match.

"The Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body has ordered the Serbian Under-21 national team to play their next Uefa competition home match behind closed doors, following a number of incidents that occurred during and after the 2013 Uefa European Under-21 Championship play-off second-leg match against England at the Mladost Stadium in Krusevac on 16 October," said a Uefa statement.

"The Football Association of Serbia (FSS) has also been fined €80,000."

Serbia fitness coach Andreja Milunovic and assistant coach Predrag Katic were both banned from all football-related activities for two years.

Players Goran Causic (banned for four matches), Ognjen Mudrinski (three matches), Filip Malbasic (three matches) and Nikola Ninkovic (two matches) were also punished.

Disciplinary proceedings against Aleksandar Pantic were dismissed.

England's Steven Caulker (two matches) and Thomas Ince (one match) were also suspended.
