1. The English Football Association has been penalized 30,000 euros ($35,600) by UEFA after a laser was pointed at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during England's Euro 2020 semi-final win, European football's governing body announced Saturday.

2. The FA was also sanctioned due to "disturbances during the national anthems and setting off fireworks" by the English fans at Wembley, some of whom booed during the play of the Danish anthem.

3. Photos in British media showed a green light on Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel's face just before Harry Kane took an extra-time penalty, which the Leicester keeper saved only to see Harry Kane score the rebound.

4. The FA and UEFA officials tried to find the source of the laser pointer when they were made aware of it being used during the first half of extra time but unable to find the responsible.

5. The Danish FA representative did not make an official complaint as they do not want to carry the matter further.

6. England won the game 2-1 at Wimbley.
