Russia faces Uefa investigation after violence

Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Russia Football Union after crowd disturbances at the Euro 2016 match between England and Russia in Marseille.

Charges against Russia are for crowd disturbances, racist behaviour, and setting off fireworks, it confirmed.

The European football governing body said it had not taken any action against the English FA.

Sanctions will be decided at a disciplinary meeting on Tuesday.
