Russia will be kicked out of Euro 2016 if their fans cause further trouble, says European governing body Uefa. The Russians have also been fined 150,000 Euros (£119,000) following violent scenes at the game against England in Marseille on Saturday. The suspended disqualification and fine relate only to incidents that happened inside the stadium.

Meanwhile, groups of Russian fans are also being deported from France as a result of trouble at the tournament. Russia coach Leonid Slutsky is confident his squad will not be excluded from the tournament. “We are sure our supporters will not do the same and will not give any reasons to disqualify our team,” he said.

“We’re not at a street-fighting championship. Please, let’s focus on football.” England were also threatened with disqualification but were not formally charged by Uefa.
