The football federations of Belgium, Hungary and Portugal could face punishment from UEFA after being charged with fan misconduct, according to the BBC. 

Belgium has been charged with setting off fireworks and throwing objects during the team’s 3–0 win over Ireland on Saturday. Hungary is also facing charges of setting off fireworks and object throwing, along with crowd disturbances.

Portugal has been charged with a field invasion during its 0–0 tie against Austria. 

Hungary will have its case heard by UEFA on June 21, while dates have not been set for the other two countries yet.

Euro 2016 has been marked by fan violence throughout the tournament, with Russia already being fined 150,000 Euros after multiple incidents. Both Russia and England have been threatened with disqualification after fans fought outside and inside of the stadium in Marseille.

Croatia will find out Monday if it will be punished after fans set off fireworks during a match against the Czech Republic on Friday.
