UEFA has confirmed plans to tighten up security at Euro 2016 matches after crowd violence marred England‘s 1-1 draw with Russia on Saturday.

Meanwhile, European football’s governing body has warned the English and Russian football associations that their teams could be disqualified from Euro 2016 if there is a continuation of the fan violence that has injured several dozen people.

UEFA’s threat came after it began disciplinary proceedings against the Russian federation on Sunday following ugly scenes inside Marseille’s Stade Velodrome stadium at the end of Saturday’s match between England and Russia.

Masked Russian fans charged at England supporters, punching and kicking them. Some England fans had to scramble over barriers to escape. UEFA said that it would also investigate allegations of racist behaviour and the throwing of missiles and fireworks.
