Russia awarded 3-0 win after crowd trouble in Montenegro, Uefa decrees

Uefa has awarded Russia a 3-0 win over Montenegro by forfeit after crowd violence forced their European Championship qualifying match last month to be stopped and later abandoned.

The ruling body said its disciplinary panel ordered Montenegro to play their next home qualifier in an empty stadium. The Montenegro federation was fined 50,000.

The Russian federation was also fined 25,000 for improper conduct by supporters but Uefa opted not to activate sanctions deferred after disorder by Russia fans at Euro 2012.

Earlier, play was suspended for 30 minutes after the Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was struck on the head by a flare just after kick-off., 8 April, 2015
