FA dispute UEFA disciplinary charges

The Football Association will challenge Uefa over the disciplinary proceedings relating to England fans' behaviour during the win against Sweden, reports BBC Sport. The investigation surrounds an attempted invasion of the pitch, according to a statement on the European governing body's website.

It is understood the FA will submit written evidence to Uefa ahead of the hearing on Wednesday.

The FA will cite the report from the Uefa match delegate, which described the behaviour of England fans as satisfactory.

Although they may accept there was some encroachment by fans following the second and third goals during England's 3-2 victory against Sweden in Kiev, they will argue it was exuberance.

They will also be critical of the stewarding at the match and the lack of seat management.
