Russia will be docked six points in qualifying for the next European football Championship if their fans step out of line again after disturbances at their opening Euro 2012 game against the Czech Republic at the weekend.

The charges against Russia's fans included setting off and throwing fireworks and the display of illicit banners at the match in Wroclaw which Dick Advocaat's team won 4-1.

Russian and Polish fans were also involved in the worst violence of the tournament around the second group game in Warsaw on Wednesday.
