FA to challenge UEFA's disciplinary proceedings

  • The Football Association (FA) are likely to contest a charge that England fans attempted a pitch invasion during their Euro 2012 victory over Sweden.

    European soccer’s world governing body, UEFA, has taken action against the FA charging them with "inappropriate conduct" of their supporters during Friday night's 3-2 win in Kiev.

    Around 30 supporters attempted to break past the barriers after the second and third England goals.

    The FA is set to argue there was no intent to invade the pitch, rather that the supporters were showing their excitement after their side recovered from 2-1 down.
