Uefa has launched an investigation into “potential discriminatory incidents” during Hungary’s Euro 2022 matches against Portugal and France.

During their opener against Portugal at Budapest’s Puskas Arena, homophobic banners were displayed by fans.

On Saturday, before the France match, fans marched to the ground with a banner telling players to stop taking a knee to protest against racism.

Several France players were also reportedly subject to racist abuse.

Uefa said it has appointed an ethics and disciplinary inspector to investigate the incidents.

The Puskas Arena is the only ground allowing a full capacity crowd at the Euros.

Meanwhile, Germany’s Manuel Neuer will face no action from Uefa for wearing a rainbow armband.
