NYON, Switzerland (AP) -- UEFA has banned two Serbia coaches for two years from football as part of the punishments for a brawl at the end of an under-21s match against England last month.

UEFA also fined Serbia €80,000 and the country's under-21s team will have to play its next competitive match without spectators.

UEFA has given coaches Predrag Katic and Andreja Milutinovic two-year bans from football, with part of their sanctions suspended.

Four Serbia players were also given bans: Goran Causic for four games, Ognjen Mudrinski and Filip Malbasic for three games and Nikola Ninkovic for two matches.

Two England players have also been sanctioned, with Steven Caulker banned for two matches and Thomas Ince for one.

England won 1-0 to qualify for the European Championship in Israel next June.
