Russia's football federation will be sanctioned Tuesday by UEFA over stadium violence at the end of the Euro 2016 game in Marseille against England.

The disciplinary committee of European football's organizing body was to decide on what action to take against the Russian Football Union.

Russian fans charged an English fan sector in the Stade Velodrome following the 1-1 draw between the two teams Saturday.

The incident had followed violent clashes in Marseille ahead of the match. UEFA has also threatened to throw both Russia and England out of the tournament if there is further fan violence during the tournament.

The Russia federation was fined several times by UEFA during Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine over the conduct of their fans in stadiums. UEFA's disciplinary committee will take fan behaviour over the past five years into account in their ruling.

England's Football Association meanwhile said it had "serious concerns" about security in Lille, where England and Russian supporters are set to gather for matches on Wednesday and Thursday.

The Russians play Slovakia in Lille on Wednesday while England face Wales in Lens on Thursday, with the two northern French cities just 40 kilometres apart.

Most England fans gathering for the game are expected to stay in the much bigger city of Lille, where the Russia fans will be based.

In a letter to UEFA, English FA chairman Greg Dyke wrote: "Whilst we will be working hard to positively influence their behaviour we have serious concerns around the security arrangements for the city in the next few days. These concerns are heightened with the knowledge that Russia will play in Lille on Wednesday afternoon."

On Monday, Marseille prosecutor said some 150 "highly trained" Russian hooligans were in the port city to cause trouble ahead of the match against England.

Thirty-five people were injured in clashes around the game including one person from England who remained in critical but stable condition.

Legal proceedings have begun against a number of fans including six Britons who were sentenced to serve up to three months in jail for throwing beer bottles at police.

Two Russians were arrested, both for a pitch invasion.

The Interior Ministry said three people have been expelled and 116 detained in football-related incidents.
