BREAKING: Bulgaria and England charged by UEFA after racism saga

England and Bulgaria have been both charged by UEFA after their European Championship qualifier on Monday night that was marred by racism.

The Bulgarian Football Union has been charged following home supporters’ “racist behavior”, “throwing of objects” and “disruption of national anthem”.

England have also been charged for the disruption of the Bulgarian national anthem by England supporters and for having an insufficient number of traveling stewards.

According to a Uefa statement, the case will be dealt with by the governing body's control, ethics and disciplinary body, with the date of the meeting yet to be confirmed.

England players, including debutant Tyrone Mings and two-goal star Raheem Sterling, were racially abused during the match, while Bulgaria fans also made Nazi Salutes.
