Former England defender Sol Campbell was aghast at the unsavoury scenes that marred England Under-21s' play-off in Serbia this week and has called on UEFA to introduce point deductions as a deterrent.
The under-21s' 1-0 victory in Krusevac, which saw them qualify for next year's European Championship in Israel, was completely overshadowed by apparent racism from the stands towards England full-back Danny Rose as well as a melee after the full-time whistle.
"It was as if there was no control from the fans, from the officials and to top it off Danny was getting abused all game from stone-throwing and monkey chants," Campbell told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme. "I think (UEFA should deduct) points and then after a while when you stop qualifying for these competitions I think people will start to wake up."
