UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England after fans shone a laser at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during the Euro 2020 semi-final and booed the Scandinavian country’s national anthem.

A laser pointer was directed at Schmeichel before he saved Harry Kane’s extra-time penalty – only for the England captain to scored the rebound.

UEFA is also investigating the lighting of fireworks inside Wembley stadium during the match.

England won the semi-final tie 2 – 1 last night after a match where they had the lion’s share of the chances.

They will now face Italy, who have been unbeaten for nearly three years, in the final at Wembley on Sunday.

If England secure victory it will mark the first time they have won a major tournament since the World Cup in 1966.
