UEFA charges Porto for fans' racial abuse in Europa League

NYON, Switzerland (AP) UEFA says Porto has been charged with racist behavior by fans at a Europa League game.

Abusive shouts were allegedly targeted at Young Boys player Jean-Pierre Nsame, who is black, as he prepared to take a penalty kick in the 15th minute of Thursday's game.

Nsame, a Cameroon international, scored from the spot in the Swiss team's 2-1 loss in Portugal.
