Tottenham Hotspur defender, Eric Dier, has finally received word from the FA regarding an incident that occurred on March 4 (BBC).
Spurs had taken on Norwich City at home in the FA Cup fifth round, losing the tie on penalties after it finished 1-1 at the 120-minute mark.
While Dier coolly slotted home his own spot-kick, the Canaries won the shootout and knocked the Lilywhites out of their final cup competition.
After the full-time whistle was blown and the majority of the Spurs players exited down the tunnel, Dier could be seen charging into the stands (Guardian).
The defender climbed row after row of seats in order to reach a member of the crowd. It was later revealed that the man in question was his brother, who Dier thought to be in danger after the loss.
The FA have charged Dier with misconduct for a breach of FA Rule E3, which journalist Jonathan Veal claims could bring with it a possible substantial ban. He has until 8 May 2020 to respond.
Eric Dier has been charged by the FA for misconduct after he climbed into the stands to confront a supporter. There is no set punishment for this charge and it will be decided by an independent panel (which means a substantial ban possibly) #THFC#COYS
