thumbnail Hello,

An attempted pitch invasion by a fan from the Iberian nation will be examined by the European governing body, with the case set to be addressed on Monday

Uefa have announced that they will open disciplinary proceedings against the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) on Monday.

The case has arisen after a Seleccao supporter attempted to invade the Stadio Narodowy pitch in Warsaw during his country’s Euro 2012 quarter-final victory over Czech Republic on Thursday.

“Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) for the inappropriate behaviour of their supporters – attempted invasion of the field of play by a fan – at the Uefa Euro 2012 quarter-final match against the Czech Republic in Warsaw on Thursday,” a statement on the Uefa website reads.

“The Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case on Monday 25 June.”

Portugal are the latest nation to be investigated by Uefa at Euro 2012, with Russia, Germany and Croatia also having found themselves under scrutiny since the tournament kicked off earlier in the month.
