The Republic of Ireland has been charged by UEFA over Tuesday night's tennis ball protest.

Fans threw the balls on to the pitch in the 33rd minute of their Euro 2020 qualifier with Georgia.

Mick McCarthy's side won the game 1-0.

Supporters in Dublin were protesting against the FAI's decision to create a new position for former chief executive John Delaney.

He stepped down from his position as CEO, only to take up the newly created position of Executive Vice President.

European football's governing body will hear the case on the 16th of May.

Yesterday the Junior Minister for Sport said fans were entitled to hold the protest.
