UEFA has charged England after a laser pointer was directed at Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel during yesterday’s Euro 2020 semi-final at Wembley.
Television pictures showed a green light on Schmeichel’s face just before Harry Kane took an extra-time penalty.
Schmeichel saved the spot-kick but Kane scored the rebound as England won 2-1 to reach Sunday’s final against Italy.
England are also charged with causing a “disturbance” during Denmark’s national anthem and setting off fireworks.
There was some booing heard during the Danish national anthem and that has been criticised by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s official spokesman.
