Official: UEFA Punishes The English Squad After They Fraudulently Qualified For The Euro Finals

UEFA has fined England's Football Association (FA) the amount of €30,000, after a laser pointer was sparkled at Denmark goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, during what end up being the vital moment of their Euro 2020 elimination round. Europe's overseeing body affirmed this on Saturday. 

A recorded clip showed that Schmeichel was compromised by a fan inside Wembley Stadium with the use of a green laser, as England commander Harry Kane came up to take his penalty shot in additional time. 

Kane concealed his own bounce back to give the Three Lions a 2-1 success on Wednesday. 

In any case, UEFA opened disciplinary procedures against England on Thursday. 

The FA was likewise charged after aggravations during the public songs of praise and for the lighting of firecrackers. 

The English squad is hoping to win their first significant prize since the 1966 World Cup and to play Italy in the European Championship last at Wembley on Sunday noon.

Over 20,000 fans have petitioned for a match replay, but it has been ignored by UEFA. However, according to reports the English squad will be donating their monetary price if they eventually win the UEFA 2020 cup.

Meanwhile, what are your thoughts concerning the punishment given to the English squad? Do you think they should be punished for the crimes of a rogue fan?
