Montenegro charged for racist abuse

UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings against Montenegro after fans racially abused England’s players on Monday night.

Danny Rose was subjected to monkey chants at the end of the impressive 5-1 comeback win in Montenegro, where earlier abuse led Raheem Sterling to celebrate the final goal of the night by pulling out his ears in front of the home fans.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, the 18-year-old whose impressive first start was overshadowed, picked up an item thrown from the stands after that goal and called for action to be taken against Montenegro, with Southgate confirming the hosts would be reported to UEFA.

UEFA have confirmed five charges will be heard on May 16, including ‘Racist behaviour’, as well as ‘Setting off of fireworks’, ‘Throwing of objects’, ‘Crowd disturbances’, ‘Stairways blocked’. – PA Sport
