European football governing body UEFA has issued a €65,000 (£49,900) fine to the Hungarian football federation (MLSZ).

The fine was assessed following an enquiry into fan trouble in Hungary’s 1-1 draw with Iceland on Saturday for Euro 2016 by UEFA.

UEFA released a statement explaining that the charges against Hungary had related to ‘crowd disturbances, setting off of fireworks and throwing of objects.’

Hungary fans clashed with Stade Velodrome security in Marseille prior to the match when some of them tried to scale a barrier into another section.

Supporters also lit and threw firecrackers and flares several times over the course of the match.

Team captain Balazs Dzsudzsak has told fans not to cause further troubles ahead of Wednesday night’s clash with Portugal in Lyon.

‘I ask that everyone continues to support us, but in a way which does not give reason for any possible punishment,’ he said.

‘Only the events on the field will determine how we finish the European Championship.’

Hungary joins two other countries to have been fined by UEFA for fan behaviour during Euro 2016.

Russia was fined €150,000 (£115,200) and given a suspended disqualification for crowd disturbances caused by their fans following their 1-1 draw with England on 11 June.

And Croatia will have to pay €100,00 (£76,800) after their fans threw flares on the pitch during a 2-2 draw with the Czech Republic on 18 June.

UEFA has ongoing investigations into fans from Romania, Albania, Portugal, Belgium, and Turkey for various alleged in-stadium offences.
