Russia has been told it will be thrown out of Euro 2016 if its fans cause further trouble at matches in the competition.

UEFA handed out a disqualification to the team, but said it would not be applied unless incidents like that seen in Marseille during the match against England are repeated.

It also fined the Russian Football Federation 150,000 euros for the crowd trouble.

Fans in Russian sections of the ground lit flares and attacked English supporters as their team earned a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

They were also accused of racist behaviour.
