Wales face UEFA rap over pitch invasion

11 September 2014, 10:53

Geneva - Wales face punishment from UEFA over Tuesday's crowd trouble after the 2-1 Euro 2016 qualifier win in Andorra.

"Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the European Qualifier Group B match between Andorra and Wales (1-2) played on Tuesday 9 September in Andorra," read a statement from European football's governing body.

The statement continued: "Football Association of Wales: Field invasion by supporters (Art.16.2a DR).

"The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 16 October 2014."

The Football Association of Wales declined to comment on the UEFA investigation which could lead to a fine, a points reduction or a warning.

The pitch invasion followed Wales' come-from-behind win when Real Madrid star Gareth Bale's double saved their blushes against a side that had not won in 51 competitive games.
