The charges against the FA include: invasion of the field of play by its supporters, throwing of objects by its supporters, disturbance caused by its supporters during the national anthem and lighting of a firework.

“The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) in due course,” UEFA said.

Last week the FA were fined 30,000 euros ($35,460) after a laser pointer was shone at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during what proved to be the deciding moment of their Euro 2020 semi-final.

The FA were also charged following a disturbance during the national anthems and for the setting off of fireworks during the semi-final.
