Serbia fined

LAUSANNE - Serbia were fined 80,000 euros ($F184,599) yesterday and ordered to play their next under-21 international behind closed doors as UEFA handed out a range of sanctions following October's violent European qualifier against England.

Two of Serbia's coaching staff members and four players were handed suspensions while two England players were also banned. In chaotic scenes at the October 21 game in Krusevac, England defender Danny Rose was sent off for kicking the ball away in response to what he said was monkey chanting and physical provocation.

Scuffles also broke out between players, coaches and supporters at the end of the match.

"The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has ordered the Serbian Under-21 national team to play their next UEFA competition home match behind closed doors," said a UEFA statement.
