The Football Association and the Serbia FA have both been charged by UEFA following the events at the under-21 match between England and Serbia in Krusevac on Tuesday night.

The Serbian FA have been charged with alleged racist chanting by fans, and both associations over the behaviour of players at the end of the stormy encounter which saw violent scenes after the final whistle.

UEFA said in a statement: "UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against both the Football Association of Serbia (FSS) and England's Football Association (FA) following a number of incidents during and after England's 1-0 win over Serbia in the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship play-off second leg at the Mladost stadium in Krusevac on Tuesday 16 October 2012.

"Regarding alleged racist chanting, UEFA will instigate proceedings against the FSS over the misconduct of their supporters during and at the end of the match. Proceedings will also be instigated against the FSS for the improper conduct of the Serbia players at the end of the match.

"UEFA will also commence proceedings against the FA for the improper conduct of the England players at the end of the match.

"These cases will be discussed on the occasion of the next ordinary hearing of the UEFA Control & Disciplinary Body on 22 November 2012."

England U21s defender Danny Rose said he was racially abused before, during and after Tuesday's match which the Young Lions won 1-0 to qualify for next year's European Championships in Israel.

Rose was sent off for kicking the ball away after the final whistle in response to what he said was monkey chanting and physical provocation.

The Serbian FA denied any racist abuse and slammed Rose for his "vulgar" behaviour.
