UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England after a laser pen appeared to be pointed at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before Harry Kane's decisive penalty in Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final.

Television pictures showed an unmistakable green light on Schmeichel's face before he parried Kane's extra-time spot-kick, with the England captain scoring the rebound to seal a 2-1 win and set up a first major tournament final since 1966.

The Football Association could also be charged with supporters booing the Denmark national anthem and setting off fireworks inside or in the immediately vicinity of Wembley during the match.

If a laser pointer was found to have been used, England face a fine of €8,000, while each firework would result in a fine of €500. Supporters set off red smoke flares outside the stadium before the match.

Booing the anthem would also result in a financial penalty and comes after the FA have repeatedly appealed for fans to respect opposition anthems during the finals. By Dan Kilpatrick, Evening Standard/Yahoo News
