Police surprised by Euro 2020 final security breach at Wembley

England have been ordered to play two games behind closed doors, with one suspended, after UEFA’s disciplinary committee took action following crowd disturbances at July’s Euro 2020 final.

Ticketless supporters clashed with stewards and police as some forced their way into the stadium for the clash with Italy, which was England’s first major final since 1966.

UEFA reviewed both the behaviour of fans and the poor security operations before the match, which the Italians eventually won on penalties.

The capacity for the final had been reduced to 60,000 from Wembley’s usual 90,000 due to Covid-19 restrictions, but as many fans gathered near the stadium on the afternoon of the match, stewards and police were left overwhelmed and unable to stop some storming through security cordons.
