LONDON - The Bulgarian Football Union will
face a UEFA disciplinary hearing this month after racist
chanting was directed at England winger Ashley Young during a
Euro 2012 qualifier in Sofia.
"The Bulgarian Football Union is to face charges of
discriminatory behaviour relating to chanting by their
supporters," a UEFA statement said on Wednesday.
Bulgaria supporters also threw flares towards the pitch and
their then coach, German Lothar Matthaus, apologised for the
home fans' behaviour afterwards.
England won the September 2 Group G match 3-0.
The case against Bulgaria will be heard by the UEFA Control
and Disciplinary Body on October 13.
