UEFA is to appeal against its own disciplinary body over the fine handed out to the Serbian FA for racist chanting at a recent under-21 European Championship match.

UEFA’s Control and Disciplinary Body fined Serbia €24,000 for the racist chanting of the Serb supporters and improper behaviour of the players during their 2-0 defeat by England.

UEFA will now press for a heavier punishment at an appeals hearing to be held on August 23.
