Euro 2020: England charged by UEFA after fans shine laser at Denmark’s keeper and boo national anthem
UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England after fans shone a laser at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during the Euro 2020 semi-final and booed the Scandinavian country’s national anthem.
A laser pointer was directed at Schmeichel before he saved Harry Kane’s extra-time penalty – only for the England captain to score the rebound.
UEFA is also investigating the lighting of fireworks inside Wembley stadium during the match.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s official spokesman condemned the use of the laser by a supporter.
“UEFA are looking into that, that’s a matter for them but it’s not something we would want to see,” Mr Johnson said.
He also urged fans not to boo teams during their national anthem.
