European soccer body UEFA confirmed that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will not face any disciplinary action over an alleged stamp on AaB's Kasper Risgard last week.

The incident occurred during United's 2-2 draw against the Danish champions last Wednesday.

Rooney's studs clearly landed on Risgard's chest, but UEFA Monday decided the contact was accidental.

A spokesman said: "UEFA will not open any disciplinary proceedings against Wayne Rooney."
