UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Portugal and Poland in the wake of Friday's (AEST) UEFA EURO 2016 quarter-final at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.

Portugal booked its ticket for the semi-finals after a hard-fought win after spot-kicks, but the match was marred by a number of incidents.

A Portugal fan invaded the pitch in extra-time, the Poland faithful had to be contained by police and both sets of supporters also set off fireworks.

UEFA confirmed both sides face disciplinary action after Friday's (AEST) events.

The PFP previously escaped punishment for a pitch invasion during their group-stage draw against Austria.

These cases will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 21 July.
