Serbia, England hearing is delayed

Comment on this story

BERNE: Uefa has postponed until December 13 a hearing into a brawl between players and alleged racist chanting by Serbia supporters at their Under-21 match at home to England last month.

European soccer’s governing body said yesterday the decision had been made by its disciplinary committee to allow for further investigations.

England fullback Danny Rose complained he was racially abused by Serbia fans before, during and after the game.

The Serbian federation (FSS) said after the game that Rose had provoked the home fans in an “inappropriate, unsportsmanlike and vulgar manner”.

England won 1-0 and fighting broke out between players and officials immediately following the final whistle. – Reuters
