Russia stands on the brink of missing the remainder of UEFA Euro 2016 after European football's governing body imposed a suspended disqualification on the country for its fans' violent behavior.

UEFA had already warned Russia and England that a repeat of the crowd trouble that dominated the build-up and aftermath of the 1-1 draw at the Stade Velodrome last Saturday would see both teams evicted from the tournament.

In a statement released Tuesday, UEFA imposed Russia, which plays Slovakia on Wednesday in Lille, with a €150,000 fine (£118,000), and said any more trouble inside stadiums at its games would see it forcibly ejected from the competition.

The news came on the same day as a video has emerged showing the shocking scale and organization of the hooliganism in Marseille.

An unnamed Russian fan with a GoPro camera strapped to his head films himself rampaging through the streets of the port city, fighting with England supporters.

Six England fans have received immediate jail sentences for their roles in the trouble.
