UEFA To Investigate French FA delay tactics on Albania

A proceedings against the French Football Federation (FFF) by UEFA, after their Euro 2020 qualifier was delayed when Albania refused to kick off until they had heard their national anthem.
The hosts mistakenly played the Andorran anthem before the start of the fixture at the Stade de France on Saturday. After the angry Albanians protested, the correct anthem was played and the game kicked off more than five minutes late.
Subsequently, UEFA's Disciplinary Committee , which investigates any delay to kick off, has notified the FFF and the case will be heard on 17 October.
The penalty is usually a warning for the first offence and a fine for a second occurence.
