The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) began disciplinary proceedings Sunday against Portugal, Hungary and Belgium for crowd disturbances during their Euro 2016 matches a day earlier.

Portugal is charged with allowing a pitch invasion, Hungary for allowing crowd disturbances and other offences, and Belgium for letting fans set off fireworks and throw objects.

A fan ran onto the pitch during Portugal's 0-0 draw with Austria at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Saturday and posed for a selfie with Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

In Marseille, Hungarian fans clashed with stewards in the Stade Velodrome as they tried to climb a fence to join up with another group of Hungarians before the 1-1 draw with Iceland.

Hungary is also accused of allowing its fans to set off fireworks and throw objects.

Belgium faces charges that its supporters threw fireworks and other objects during the 3-0 win against the Republic of Ireland in Bordeaux.

The hearing for the Hungarian football association will be held on June 21, while dates have yet to be set for the other two nations.
