Spartak Moscow's Leonid Mironov has been charged with racist behaviour following an alleged incident in his side's UEFA Youth League match with Liverpool.

Brewster, a member of the England Under-17 squad who won the World Cup earlier this year - reported the issue to referee Mohammed Al-Hakim towards the end of the game, while Liverpool also lodged a complaint after the final whistle.

UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body will now deal with the case, though a date for the hearing is yet to be confirmed.

Spartak were charged with racist behaviour following issues in the reverse fixture. The Russian club were ordered to partially close their academy stadium following inappropriate chants from a section of supporters.
