UEFA has acknowledged Holland's black players were the victims of racist abuse during a training session in Krakow this week.

Members of Bert van Marwijk's European Championship squad were allegedly subjected to monkey chants during an open training session on Wednesday, with captain Mark van Bommel branding the incident "a real disgrace".

Having initially been satisfied by the Dutch Football Association's belief that the abuse was not racially motivated, UEFA announced on Friday morning they had been made aware of "isolated incidents of racist chanting".
