Uefa fines Croatian, Portuguese FAs

Cup Competitions

Warsaw – The Croatian Football Federation broke the €100,000 barrier for fines on Tuesday after Uefa slapped a €30,000 penalty on them for the behaviour of their fans at their final Euro 2012 group game against Spain.

The Croatians – who were fined €80,000 earlier in the tournament for racist taunts aimed at Italy's Mario Balotelli during their group game – were held to account for the supporters unfurling racist banners and letting off flares during the match which ended in a 1-0 defeat to Spain and saw them exit the tournament.
