    It's all kicked off at the U21 game in Serbia too:

    England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce has said Serbia will be reported to UEFA after his players were racially abused at the end of their Euro 2013 play-off win in Krusevac.
    Defender Danny Rose gestured that monkey noises had been made towards him by the crowd before he was sent off after the final whistle.
    Steve Wigley, one of the England coaching staff, also appeared to become caught up in the trouble as the players left the field.
    In further ugly scenes, scuffles broke out when fans entered the field and the England players were pelted with missiles.
    Pearce told ESPN: "I think there were one or two racist incidents that came on from the crowd and they have been reported to UEFA, I believe, by ourselves.
    "It is in their hands now, they will have to deal with that.
    Pearce said: "It is very sad, but we are united as a team and a staff.
    "A lot is happening in our country with regard to stamping out racism and I am very proud of the reaction of our players towards the end.
    "It is a real shame because over two ties, it was a really close game - two good teams going hammer and tongs at each other.
    "It is just a shame it was soured in the last few minutes of the second leg of the tie.
    "I am very proud of my players and my staff and very proud of the achievement in getting to a fourth tournament in a row."
    He added: "Savo Milosevic, their technical director, has come to our dressing room and apologised for any behaviour that was unsavoury.
    "I never want to see any football matches end like that, this is a sporting arena."
    Former England captain Paul Ince, working as a pundit on ESPN, also felt the visiting players conducted themselves well in the circumstances.
    He said: "If you are black, it is hard to actually keep control of yourself because you are the one having the racist chants.
    "From looking at what we have seen on TV, they have done very well to keep cool heads.
    "It is a shame because tomorrow we will be talking about something we don't want to talk about.
    "What we should be talking about is England qualifying for Israel in 2013."

    Just saw a bit of it on ITV's coverage and it looked like it got pretty crazy.

    Shit quality video from someone in the crowd but you can hear monkey chanting clearly and how big a scene was caused, think it'll be quite interesting to see the full TV recording of it.

    I think Serbia will be getting a FIFA/UEFA holiday for a while. I saw the scenes last night whilst waiting for the England game to be called off.

    There seems to be a problem with eastern European countries and racism at the moment, not just eastern Europena countries, Spain has a few problems too.
