Players' union chairman Clarke Carlisle has repeated his call for Serbia to be banned from international competition if the charge of racist chanting against them is upheld.

European governing body UEFA hold their disciplinary hearing on Thursday after charging the Serbian football association (FSS) over the alleged racist chanting of fans during their Under-21 European Championship qualifier against England last month.

Professional Footballers' Association chairman Carlisle, speaking at the Street League Academy in Manchester, said: "What I saw was disgusting racial abuse from the crowd to the players. I saw physical altercations on the pitch that developed into a mass brawl."
