He ruled out increasing the number of fans allowed to attend Wembley, saying: “There are no plans to extend the capacity.”
It follows news this early today that UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England after a laser pointer was shone in the face of Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel in Wednesday night’s Euro 2020 semi-final.
Two other charges have been levelled after incidents during England’s 2-1 victory at Wembley.
Along with investigating the laser pointer – shone at Schmeichel before he saved Harry Kane’s extra-time penalty only for Kane to score the rebound – UEFA is also looking into the booing of the Denmark national anthem and the lighting of fireworks inside the stadium.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s official spokesman said: “UEFA are looking into that, that’s a matter for them but it’s not something we would want to see.”
Johnson also urged fans not to boo teams during their national anthem.
“We don’t want fans to be booing teams. We want fans to be showing support and being respectful,” he said.
