UEFA are standing firm in insisting that the Football Association will have to take the rap for all outbreaks of disorder involving any England fans in Portugal.

FA officials are seething that they have taken detailed precautions to monitor fans buying tickets from the official England supporters club - only to have UEFA making other tickets available much more freely over the internet.

But UEFA communications director William Gaillard said that there could be no distinction between 'official' England fans and those who had obtained tickets from other sources.

Gaillard said: "UEFA's position is that the English FA are responsible for the behaviour of all football fans from England.

"The FA and the British authorities have made tremendous efforts to keep hooligans out of Portugal and we recognise these efforts but at the same time the proof of the pudding will be in the eating."
