ENGLAND has been hit with three charges from Uefa after their sensational 2-1 Euro 2020 semi-final victory against Denmark.

A laser pen was shone in Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel’s eyes just before Harry Kane took his penalty.

The Leicester man still managed to save the spot-kick before Kane tucked home the rebound.

Uefa has charged England for this, as well as for fans booing the Denmark national anthem and for ‘letting off fireworks.

A statement from the football governing body added: “The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) in due course.”

A financial penalty is the expected sanction – and it could be five figures.

Raheem Sterling won a penalty shortly before the end of the first 15-minute period of extra-time with the teams locked at 1-1.

After a quick VAR check, England captain Kane stepped up to take the spot-kick.

The Spurs star saw his effort well saved by Leicester ace Schmeichel, before thumping home the rebound to send England to the final.

But after the game, footage emerged which showed a green laser flickering across the Danish stopper’s face, with a fan seemingly looking to distract him.
