The governing body issue a message against racism before every match at the U21 European Championships, but a song that contained numerous references to the ‘n word’ was played just seconds before it on Saturday evening.
The offensive lyrics were played over the tannoy before England’s 3-1 defeat to Norway, with UEFA left to promise that a full inquiry would be conducted into how such music could be used at a high-profile game.
A UEFA spokesman said: "There was a misunderstanding regarding the instructions to the local DJ about acceptable lyrics inside the stadium. The process will be reviewed accordingly."
Officials from the European game’s governing body were left red faced after the latest controversy concerning racism with the organisation having been previously criticised for not taking the issue seriously enough.
In December, UEFA fined Serbia just £65,900 after their fans racially abused England’s black players throughout their now infamous U21 play-off in Krusevac last October.
Strikingly, the fine handed out to Serbia was less than Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner was rapped for displaying underpants emblazoned with the logo of a bookmaker after he scored a goal for his country at Euro 2012.
