England have been charged by UEFA after a fan pointed a laser at Kasper Schmeichel’s face during their victory over Denmark at Euro 2020.
The incident took place as Harry Kane stepped up to take a penalty in the semi-final clash at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.
A video surfaced online showing Schmeichel’s face being lit up by a laser just before the spot-kick in extra-time.

The Three Lions are also charged with causing a ‘disturbance’ during Denmark’s national anthem and setting off fireworks.
