UEFA set to announce Serbia verdict

UEFA's control and disciplinary body is expected to deliver its verdict on the alleged racist chanting that marred the England Under-21 team's victory over Serbia in October.

The Euro 2013 play-off match in Krusevac was marred by the alleged chanting towards England's black players and on-pitch violence at the final whistle, and UEFA is set to deliver its verdict on Thursday.

England defender Danny Rose, sent off after the final whistle, gestured that monkey chants had been directed at him from the stands and later said he had suffered 90 minutes of racial abuse by the crowd.

He also alleged he had been "slapped twice" before receiving his red card

But the Serbian FA denied there had been any racist chants and alleged that Rose had behaved in an "inappropriate, unsportsmanlike and vulgar manner" towards Serbia's fans.

The Serbian FA and the English FA face charges of failing to control their players after the on-pitch violence at the end of the match.

Lengthy bans have since been issued by the Serbian FA to two players and two officials for their roles in the trouble.

A UEFA hearing had been due to take place on November 22, but was postponed "to allow for further investigations" by European football's governing body.

Following the match, sports minister Hugh Robertson wrote to UEFA president Michel Platini urging the governing body to take "tough sanctions".

Prime Minister David Cameron echoed his call, saying Britain would expect as much should the allegation of racism be proven.
