Uefa has handed the Russia team a "suspended disqualification" from Euro 2016 following the crowd trouble that erupted following the opening game against England over the weekend (11 June 2016).

Uefa said Russia would the thrown out of the tournament if any of their fans commit further violence following the shocking scenes that took place in the stands of the Stade Velodrome and on the streets of Marseille.

However, Russia would only be suspended if there is a repeat of violent incidents from fans during the team's next two games and possibly further matches, depending on how far they can progress through the competition. Russia have also been handed a €150,000 (£118,893) fine after alleged 'Russian Ultra' gangs of football hooligans descended on France to target fans. The hooligans were described by French authorities as "hyper-violent and hyper-rapid".

A statement from Uefa's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) said: "A suspended disqualification of the Russian national team from Uefa Euro 2016 for the crowd disturbances. In accordance with Article 20 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, this disqualification is suspended until the end of the tournament. Such suspension will be lifted if incidents of a similar nature (crowd disturbances) happen inside the stadium at any of the remaining matches of the Russian team during the tournament."

GoPro footage of Russian supporters causing chaos on the streets of France has been published online, with those involved seen armed with sticks and iron bars and throwing bottles while targeting England fans ahead of their Group B match.

Elsewhere, FA Chairman Greg Dyke has asked Uefa to reassess their security arrangements ahead of England's next Euro 2016 fixture against Wales on Thursday (16 June), believing stewarding provision was "insufficient in and around the Stade Velodrome" during the game against Russia. Dyke added: "We join you [UEFA] in condemning the horrible scenes in Marseille away from the stadium on Thursday, Friday and matchday. A minority of English fans were clearly involved in some of those incidents and that is extremely disappointing to us all.

"But please also recognise that tens of thousands have behaved in a positive way. Regardless, we are working with all of the authorities and UEFA to do everything we can to avoid a repeat.
"We believe the stewarding arrangements in place [in Marseille] were unacceptable. Supporters were able to get in with fireworks and flares, and then let them off, and there was insufficient segregation between the Russian and English fans, particularly given the events of the previous two days."

He added: "We know that UK police authorities are stepping up their support on the ground, but we would urge you to bring the policing authorities in both Lille and Lens together as soon as possible to ensure there is a coordinated and effective plan in place. Again we are ready to play our part in these discussions."
