The Football Association are set to fight a charge that England fans attempted a pitch invasion during their European Championship victory over Sweden.
European football's governing body charged the FA on Sunday for the "inappropriate conduct" of their supporters during Friday's Group D 3-2 win in Kiev.
England's second and third goals at the Olympic Stadium did result in around 20-30 fans surging forward towards the barriers.
It is understood the FA will argue there was no intent to invade the pitch, simply supporters showing their exuberance after watching their side recover from a 2-1 deficit.
The FA are planning to submit written evidence in a bid to escape punishment ahead of a UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body hearing on Wednesday.
Written submissions will include evidence from UK police and the FA's own fans' liaison representative.
The report of UEFA's delegate at the game which labelled the conduct of England supporters as "satisfactory" could also be submitted.
England went on to get all three points from the game with Danny Welbeck scoring the winning goal.
Hodgson's men only need a draw from Tuesday's final Group D match against Ukraine to assure themselves of a place in the next round.
