Millions of TV viewers looked on as violence broke out between supporters during the later stages of the London club's 2-0 defeat at Wembley Stadium.

The clashes left some Lions fans bloodied, while some younger supporters were reduced to tears by the skirmishes around them.

"The FA and Wembley Stadium will work with police and representatives of Millwall FC to review all events," he said in a statement.

"We will look to ensure those involved are identified and we would call for criminal charges and a football banning order to be brought against them.

"The FA deplore the scenes which have taken place, which are unacceptable. Everything will be done to take action against those involved."

Millwall chief executive Andy Ambler said teh club would do all it could to aid the investigation: "Our position is clear. Anyone associated with our club found guilty of violent behaviour will be banned indefinitely from Millwall matches in addition to any punishment they receive from the authorities.

"Having worked so hard to show the positive side of our club both on and off the field, we cannot allow the actions of a mindless minority to undermine that.

"At this stage we are still in the process of establishing the full details of what happened in a section of the ground during the second half. When we have those facts at our disposal and the police have completed their investigations we may be in a position to comment further."

Dave Whelan, chairman of Wigan, who won the match 2-0, told the BBC: "I can't understand why the Millwall fans would fight each other.

"I understand if they want to fall out with the visiting team, but why would they fall out amongst themselves? It just gives football a very, very poor reputation."

Wigan will meet the winner of Sunday's second semi-final, between Chelsea and Manchester City, in the final.
