England Under-21s captain Jordan Henderson praised his players for their reaction to the alleged racist abuse suffered in Serbia and called on UEFA to take the appropriate action.

The Football Association reported "a number of incidents of racism" to UEFA after ugly scenes marred a 1-0 win for Stuart Pearce's team in the second leg of their European Championship play-off in Krusevac.

Liverpool midfielder Henderson said on www.thefa.com: "Everyone is delighted with the result and going to the Euros, but what happened tonight wasn't nice and is not called for in football. There was a lot of racist abuse out there from the stands and a lot going on after the game, which is hard to take for the players."
