FA complain to UEFA over Serbian racist chants

The FA have complained to UEFA after several ugly incidents marred England U21's win in Serbia last night.

Sunderland wing-back Danny Rose was sent off after the final whistle after apparently responding angrily to monkey taunts from the crowd at the end of the Euro 2013 play-off in Krusevac.

Scuffles also broke out when supporters invaded the field moments after Connor Wickham struck in injury time to complete a 1-0 win on the night and 2-0 aggregate success.

A statement from the FA read: "The FA condemns both the scenes of racism and the confrontation at the final whistle during which time our players and staff were under extreme provocation.

"The FA has reported a number of incidents of racism to UEFA following the fixture.

"These were seemingly aimed at a number of England black players by the crowd. The matter is now with UEFA."
