UEFA says it has opened disciplinary charges after England players were subjected to racist abuse during an away game in Bulgaria.

The European football governing body has charged the Bulgarian Football Union with four offences: racist behaviour including chants and Nazi salutes, the throwing of objects, disruption of the national anthem, and replays on a giant screen.

Two charges have also been brought against the English Football Association: disruption of the national anthem and an insufficient number of travelling stewards.

Bulgaria has come in for heavy criticism for the conduct of home fans during the Euro 2020 qualifier on Monday night, which was played in a partially closed stadium as punishment for "racist behaviour" by fans during a previous match against Kosovo in June.
