Russia could face disciplinary action over the behaviour of their fans during their European Championship victory over Czech Republic, which was marred by allegations of racism and violence.

Press Association Sport understands UEFA are considering whether to take action against the Russian Football Federation after anti-racism campaigners claimed Czech defender Theodor Gebre Selassie was the victim of monkey chants during Friday night's Group A game in Wroclaw.

And European football's governing body were also deciding if they would sanction Russia after their fans were caught on camera attacking stewards in a walkway at the Municipal Stadium.
