The Bulgarian Football Union will face a Uefa disciplinary hearing this month over racist chants directed at England winger Ashley Young during last month's Euro 2012 qualifier in Sofia.

"The Bulgarian Football Union is to face charges of discriminatory behaviour relating to chanting by their supporters," a Uefa statement said yesterday.

Bulgaria supporters also threw flares towards the pitch and their then coach, Lothar Matthäus, apologised for the crowd's behaviour after the Group G match, which England won 3-0.
