UEFA have ordered Serbia to play their next under-21 international behind closed doors following racist chanting and violent scenes during and after England Under-21's victory in Krusevac in October.

The control and disciplinary body also banned six players for varying terms, including English duo Tom Ince and Steven Caulker, and two Serbian coaches after ugly scenes marred the end of the European Championship play-off.

The FA had reported the racist abuse to UEFA plus a number of other incidents. Full-back Danny Rose, who was dismissed after the final whistle for kicking the ball away in anger, complained he had been particularly targeted. Rose claimed he was subjected to monkey chants throughout the match and as he left the pitch.
