Russia have received a suspended disqualification from Euro 2016 for crowd disorder by their fans during the 1-1 draw with England in Marseille.

They have also been fined 115,000 euros.

The Russian Football Union (RFU) were charged in relation to offences of crowd disturbances, use of fireworks and racist behaviour inside the Stade Velodrome on Saturday.

UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body met in Paris to consider the case and imposed the suspended disqualification and a 150,000 euro financial penalty.

However, any further incidents of crowd disturbance inside grounds at Russia’s matches during the European Championships will see the suspension lifted and the country thrown out of Euro 2016.
