UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England after a laser pen appeared to be pointed at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before Harry Kane's decisive penalty in Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final.
Television pictures showed an unmistakable green light on Schmeichel's face before he parried Kane's extra-time spot-kick, with the England captain scoring the rebound to seal a 2-1 win and set up a first major tournament final since 1966.â¨
The Football Association could also be charged with supporters booing the Denmark national anthem and setting off fireworks inside or in the immediately vicinity of Wembley during the match.
If a laser pointer was found to have been used, England face a fine of €8,000, while each firework would result in a fine of €500. â¨Supporters set off red smoke flares outside the stadium before the match.â¨
Booing the anthem would also result in a financial penalty and comes after the FA have repeatedly appealed for fans to respect opposition anthems during the finals.
