Danny Rose has called for Serbia to be banned after he complaining of racist abuse and being hit by missiles during England Under-21s' win in Krusevac.

The Tottenham defender, currently on loan at Sunderland, said he had been subjected to monkey taunts long before the violent scenes which marred the end of the Euro 2013 play-off on Tuesday.

Sports minister Hugh Robertson on Wednesday sent a letter to UEFA president Michel Platini urging tough sanctions from the governing body following the "disgraceful scenes" of racism in Serbia.
