HUNGARY have been handed an away fan ban by Fifa for the violence that marred their World Cup draw with England at Wembley last month.
Visiting fans, aided by some Polish supporters, attacked police after one of their number was arrested for racially abusing a steward.
Officers were initially forced back down an entrance gangway before controlling the surge in an incident which took place in the early minutes of the 1-1 draw.
Now Fifa have stepped in after finding the Hungarians guilty of a “lack of order” and “improper conduct”, imposing a one match ban on away fans and a £60,000 fine.
That comes after Hungary were fined £161,000 and handed a two game home fan ban for the racist abuse and missiles directed at England players in the game in Budapest in September.
It means the Hungarians will be without supporters for both their final two 2022 qualifiers – against San Marino and in Poland – and the opening home game of their 2026 campaign.
Meanwhile England's next opponents, Albania, must play their final qualifier at home to Andorra on November 15 behind closed doors after disturbances during their home game against Poland, also on October 12.
The match in Tirana was temporarily suspended after bottles were thrown on to the pitch following a Karol Swiderski goal for Poland in the 77th minute.

England themselves were charged by Uefa fan trouble at the Euro 2020 final.
Gareth Southgate's men won't have fans present for their next Uefa home match – which will be a Nations League contest next year.
And the Three Lions were also hit with an £85,000 fine as well as a second match behind closed doors, which is suspended for two years.
It comes after chaos at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley this summer when ticketless fans stormed the stadium.
