England have been fined £25,000 for three incidents which took place during their 2-1 Euro 2020 semi-final win against Denmark on Wednesday.

A laser beam was shone in the eyes of Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before Harry Kane's extra-time penalty.

And some supporters booed the opposition national anthem ahead of kick-off, while others lit flares.

In a statement released on Saturday, UEFA said: "The UEFA Control Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has announced the following decision:

Match : UEFA EURO 2020 semi-final match between England and Denmark (2-1), played on 7 July at Wembley Stadium, London

• Disturbance caused by its supporters during the national anthems – Article 16(2)(g) DR

"I told the referee. And he went to say something to the other officials."

Meanwhile, Gary Lineker was among those to plea with England fans to not repeat their booing of the anthem ahead of this Sunday's final against Italy.

The BBC Sport presenter tweeted: "If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket for the final, please, please don’t boo the Italian anthem.

"A/ It’s an absolute belter and worth listening to. B/ It’s bloody rude, disrespectful and utterly classless."
