UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Russia, Montenegro

UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against the Russian and Montenegrin football associations after Friday's abandoned match between the two countries.

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Russian and Montenegrin Football Associations following Friday's abandoned match between the two countries.

The match in Podgorica was halted at 0-0 in the 67th minute after Russia's Dmitri Kombarov was hit by an object, sparking a brawl between the players.

Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev had earlier been struck by a flare thrown from the stands in the opening seconds of the ill-tempered affair.

The Montenegro Football Association has been charged with holding a match that did not get played in full, and for fans throwing fireworks and missiles.

The Russian Football Union has also been charged for the setting off and throwing of fireworks and objects by their spectators.

Russia have lodged a formal complaint with UEFA and demand that they be awarded a victory.
