    Serbia could face tough sanctions over racism: Platini

    England Under-21 defender Danny Rose complained after a Euro qualifier in Serbia last week that he had been racially abused.

    Paris: Serbia could face tough sanctions from UEFA's disciplinary committee after racism again marred a football game in the country last week, president Michel Platini said on Tuesday.

    England Under-21 defender Danny Rose complained after a Euro qualifier in Serbia last week that he had been racially abused and the British government demanded serious punishment against Serbia.

    "Over a year ago we gave Croatia and Serbia a serious yellow card, now we will see what the disciplinary committee will decide," Platini, referring to recurrent racism and violence problems in the Balkan country, told reporters at a Euro 2016 meeting. "We will get the report from the delegates, the report from the officials," he said. "We have television footage. The disciplinary committee will deal with it."
