Russia given 'suspended' ban from Euro 2016

Russia will be disqualified from Euro 2016 if there is further crowd trouble at their remaining matches.

Uefa, European football's governing body, has given Russia a suspended disqualification and a 150,000 euro (£119,000) fine for disorder at the game against England in Marseille.


Russia were also charged for fan racism and lighting fireworks at the match.



Groups of Russia fans are being deported from France after repeated scenes of violence at Euro 2016.


The suspended disqualification and fine relate only to incidents that happened inside the stadium.


The decision is open to appeal, but Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko indicated that would not happen.


Mukto, who is also president of the Russian Football Union, said the country will comply with Uefa's decision, adding: "What other position can there be?"
