England players and staff: Clashed with Serbian opponents during play-off encoun

It is understood that Tottenham defender Steven Caulker, Leeds centre-half Tom Lees and coach Steve Wigley face charges following events which unfolded at the end of a stormy European Championship play-off tie on 16th October.

Serbia's public prosecutor is determining whether to pursue the matter, but the FA has yet to hear anything on the record from officials in the eastern European country.

"The FA continues to remain in close contact with the UK Government regarding the continued media reports of Serbian police charging England U21 players and staff," said an FA statement.

"There remains no formal communication of any charges to the FA or the Government.

"However, we understand there has been a verbal communication of the names of the individuals concerned, which we now believe to be England players Steven Caulker and Tom Lees, and coach Steve Wigley.

"The FA would like to reaffirm its support for all of our players and staff and we have spoken with the players' clubs and those named to express this.

"The FA has been taking legal advice in both the UK and Serbia to provide appropriate protection should any charges be brought.

"We welcome the support we are receiving from the UK Government."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
