Russia have been handed a suspended disqualification from Euro 2016 as well as a €150,000 fine by UEFA following Saturday night's clashes with England fans in the Stade Velodrome.
Russian fans appeared to organise a coordinated attack on England supporters in certain sections of the stadium after the final whistle in Saturday's 1-1 draw in Group B. UEFA officials met in Paris today in order to decide on disciplinary action against the Russian Football Union.
The result has seen Russia charged with a suspended disqualification, although actual disqualification will be enforced if Russian fans engage in any similar incidents in the nation's remaining fixtures.
Trouble is, disqualification is just sending the team home, the hooligans will remain. It'll probably result in more chaos. #Euro2016— TheFootballRepublic (@TheFootballRep) June 14, 2016
It is worth noting that the charges only relate to incidents that took place inside the Stade Velodrome. The violence on the streets in the days leading up to the match is out of the governing body's jurisdiction.
Russia's next game takes place against Slovakia in Lille on Wednesday. England face Wales in Lens the following day, with the two cities separated by just a 30-minute drive.
