(1:49) The English Football Association (FA) has launched an investigation into the fan unrest that marred England’s Euro 2020 final against Italy.

Following the event, police reported they had arrested 49 people while policing the final, and that 19 officers had been hurt in conflicts with tumultuous crowds around the stadium.
“We are committed to fully establish what transpired outside and subsequently inside Wembley Stadium at the UEFA EURO 2020 Final on Sunday 11 July 2021,” the FA said in a statement on Monday.
“Over the weekend, we told DCMS [Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport] that an independent review led by Baroness Casey of Blackstock had been commissioned to report on the facts and circumstances involved,” says the statement.
It will consult with all parties involved, as well as external specialists.
“A significant focus of the findings will be to guarantee that lessons are learned and that such heinous acts are never repeated,” says the report.
“We continue to engage with the relevant authorities in support of their attempts to identify those guilty and hold them accountable,” England and Manchester United defender Harry Maguire said after the game that his father had rib injuries and was having trouble breathing after being crushed by fans amid crowd disturbances.
In addition to charging the FA with four distinct infractions relating to fan behaviour, UEFA has initiated a formal inquiry into the storming of Wembley.
