UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the FA over some England supporters’ behaviour at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.
Gareth Southgate’s men fell to an agonising penalty shoot-out loss to Italy last month.
But scenes in and around the stadium marred the Three Lions’ second ever major final appearance as ticketless supporters stormed the turnstiles.
Thousands of England fans attempted to breach Wembley security at July 11 clash, with many believed to have been successful in getting inside to watch the match.
The FA commissioned an independent review to investigate the trouble and vowed to identify those responsible for the “disgraceful scenes” at the national stadium.
European football’s governing body also opened a disciplinary investigation into the chaotic scenes and has ruled the FA potentially breached Article 16 (2) (h) of the Uefa Disciplinary Regulations.
The clause covers lack of order or discipline of supporters.
The rush of fans caused stampedes and reports of violence inside and outside the stadium.
England star Harry Maguire’s father even had his ribs broken in a crush as he attempted to legally enter the venue.
Security barriers were toppled over and some stadium staff claimed “hundreds” of supporters were involved in knocking down or climbing over perimeter fencing in the build-up to kick-off.
One breach through a disabled exit inside the stadium saw several England fans attack ticketless supporters, with stewards and police notable in their absence.
Other supporters complained about being unable to attend the final because of the scenes, despite having tickets worth more than £1000.
As well as the FA coming under the scrutiny, the fallout has also seen police release photos of people they believe were responsible for some of the chaos.
Elsewhere fighting broke out around the country, with famous areas of London also trashed due to fans gathering in their thousands.
The behaviour of thugs has also led to doubt over the UK and Ireland being successful in their bid to host the 2030 World Cup.
