Uefa will not charge Milan striker Andrii Shevchenko for an apparent head-butt on Inter defender Marco Materazzi.

A Uefa statement said: “It happened in front of the assistant referee, who did not indicate anything to the referee.”

The incident occurred in the opening minutes of the Champions League quarter-final second leg in the San Siro stadium.

Shevchenko scored after half an hour to give his side a 3-0 aggregate lead before the game was abandoned because of crowd trouble by Inter fans.
