UEFA has charged the Hungarian soccer federation for fan disorder inside the stadium at a European Championship match in Marseille.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge charges of "crowd disturbances," throwing objects and setting off fireworks on Tuesday.

Fans clashed with stewards and some police before the game when trying to climb a fence to enter a section behind one goal. Riot police then formed in lines in front a section of Hungary fans, in the same end of Stade Velodrome where Russians attacked England fans one week earlier.

Hungary fans then lit or threw flares or firecrackers during the national anthems, when Iceland was awarded a penalty kick, and after their team scored a late goal in a 1-1 draw.

UEFA is likely to impose a fine.
