FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Hungarian, English, Albanian and Polish football federations after condemning disorder involving Hungary and Albania fans in separate World Cup qualifiers. Hungary is facing a fresh FIFA punishment after its supporters fought with police in the stands at Wembley Stadium just after kickoff against England on Tuesday as officers sought to arrest a spectator on suspicion of racially abusing a steward. Poland’s game in Tirana in Group I was suspended for around 20 minutes after Karol Świderski was struck by a bottle thrown from the Albania fans after scoring. Poland’s players walked off but returned to the field and held on to win 1-0.
