Montenegro punished by UEFA after crowd disturbances in match against Russia

UEFA has awarded Russia a 3-0 victory over Montenegro after the Euro 2016 qualifier in Podgorica was abandoned following crowd trouble.

The referee called a halt to proceedings with the game at 0-0 with 67 minutes played.

Montenegro has been ordered to play its next two home matches behind closed doors and pay a fine of €50,000.

Montenegro has decided not to appeal and in a statement said it had expected the decision.

Russia was fined €30,000 for the improper conduct of its supporters.
