England given 1 game without fans over Wembley chaos

England have been ordered to play one match behind closed doors as a punishment for the unrest at Wembley Stadium during the Euro 2020 final.

European football's governing body, UEFA, announced on Monday, that the ban on fans, attending the 2nd game, has been suspended for two years, while the English FA has been fined 100,000 euros. Fans fought with stewards and police as they attempted to break into Wembley Stadium ticketless for the match on 11th of July, which England lost to Italy on penalties.

UEFA opened a disciplinary investigation over the issue and finally, the panel imposed the fine and two-match ban on supporters "for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium, for the invasion of the field of play, for throwing objects and causing disturbances during the national anthems". The ban will be in place for England's next home-game in a UEFA competition, which will be in the Nations League next June.
