UEFA has opened disciplinary
proceedings against the German Football Association (DFB) for
"improper conduct" from their fans during the Euro 2012 Group B
match against Denmark on Sunday.
"The DFB is charged with the setting-off of fireworks and
the improper conduct of supporters (display of inappropriate
banners and symbols, and inappropriate chanting)," European football's governing body said in a statement on Tuesday.
The Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) group said a
neo-nazi banner was displayed by German fans.
FARE, an independent anti-discrimination network working
closely with UEFA to identify instances of racism at matches in
the tournament, tweeted on Tuesday: "FARE can confirm that one
of our observers reported a neo-nazi banner in the German
section at match versus Denmark game in Lviv on Sunday".
The DFB has already been fined 10,000 euros at
this tournament by UEFA after Germany fans threw what appeared
to be rolled up pieces of paper at Portugal players during their
match in Lviv on June 9.
UEFA will deal with the latest case on Saturday.
