The Football Association have been fined £4,035 by UEFA for the behaviour of England's fans during their win over Sweden in Kiev last Friday.

The fine was for the attempted pitch invasion by England supporters during the Group D match, European football's governing body confirmed in a statement.

The FA have decided not to contest the fine believing the relative small amount reflects UEFA's belief the incident was not serious.

"The FA accepts UEFA's sanction in relation to the incident versus Sweden and we consider the matter closed," said an FA statement.

After England's second and third goals by Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck between 20 and 30 fans surged forward towards the barriers but no one got further than the outside of the Olympic Stadium's running track.
