U21 trio charged over game incident
Serbian police have charged two England Under-21 players and one of the team's coaches following this month's stormy European Championship qualifier.
The British government have confirmed that the Serbian police have submitted charges against the unnamed players and assistant coach after contacting their counterparts in the Balkan country.
The game in Krusevac on October 16, which England won to secure a place in next summer's Euro 2013 finals in Israel, was marred by alleged racist chanting and violent scuffles.
A British government spokesman said: "Serbian police have announced that they have submitted charges against two England players and an assistant coach to the public prosecutor following an incident at the England-Serbia under-21 football match in Serbia earlier this month.
"We are investigating the full details of these charges before considering our response."
The spokesman said they were seeking clarity over the charges and its ramifications.
