UEFA disciplinary committee to investigate fan violence in Marseille

The UEFA disciplinary committee is to investigate the violence between fans which marred the conclusion of the England-Russia Euro 2016 match in Marseille, the European governing body confirmed Sunday.

Rival supporters had been involved with clashes and locals in the days ahead of the match Saturday and further violence took place following Russia's injury time equalizer in the 1-1 draw at the Stade Velodrome.

Russian fans appeared to attack English supporters sitting in neighbouring blocks, forcing them to flee.

UEFA gave no further information about the details of the investigation.
