The Football Association is set to contest a UEFA charge that England fans attempted a pitch invasion during the Euro 2012 victory over Sweden.
UEFA confirmed earlier on Sunday that disciplinary proceedings had been opened regarding the behaviour of supporters at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev.
The FA was charged with the 'inappropriate conduct' of their fans in Kiev after England's second and third goals resulted in around 20-30 fans surging forward towards the barriers.
But it is understood that the FA plans to submit written evidence in a bid to escape punishment ahead of a UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body hearing on Wednesday.
It is understood the FA will argue there was no intent to invade the pitch, simply supporters showing their exuberance after watching their side recover from a 2-1 deficit to win 3-2.
Written submissions will include evidence from UK police and the FA's own fans' liaison representative, while mention might also be given to the report of UEFA's delegate at the game which labelled the conduct of England supporters as 'satisfactory'.
