Serbia-England disciplinary decisions announced

UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body orders Serbia's U21s to play their next UEFA competition home game behind closed doors among sanctions relating to the Serbia-England play-off.

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, following a number of incidents that occurred during and after the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship play-off second-leg match against England at the Mladost Stadium in Krusevac on 16 October. The Football Association of Serbia (FSS) has also been fined €80,000.

The sanction against the FSS has been imposed for the improper conduct of its supporters, specifically racist behaviour, during and at the end of the match, as well as for the improper conduct of the Serbia players at the end of the game.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has also decided to:

• Suspend Serbia fitness coach Andreja Milutinović from all football-related activities for two years, the second of which is suspended for a probationary period of three years. FIFA will be requested to extend this decision so as to give it a worldwide effect.

• Suspend Serbia assistant coach Predrag Katić from all football-related activities for one year, the final six months of which are suspended for a probationary period of three years. FIFA will be requested to extend this decision so as to give it a worldwide effect.

• Suspend Serbia player Ognjen Mudrinski for three UEFA national team competition matches.

The suspensions will apply to the next UEFA national team competition matches for which the players would be eligible.

The disciplinary proceedings opened against Serbia player Aleksandar Pantić are dismissed.

At the same hearing, the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body decided to dismiss the disciplinary proceedings opened against The Football Association. The FA has received a warning for improper conduct by its team (more than five cautions).

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has also decided to:

• Suspend England player Steven Caulker for two UEFA national team competition matches. This suspension applies to the following games: England v Italy on 5 June 2013 and England v Norway on 8 June 2013.
