The Croatian football
federation, fined 80,000 euros by UEFA on Tuesday for racist
chanting by their fans at Euro 2012, faces further punishment
after it was charged on Wednesday for the display of racist
banners against Spain.
"UEFA has today opened disciplinary proceedings against the
Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for the setting-off and
throwing of fireworks, and the improper conduct of supporters
(display of racist banners and symbols) at the UEFA Euro 2012
Group C match against Spain in Gdansk on Monday," the governing
body said in a statement.
The disciplinary case, UEFA said, also involves the
"improper conduct" of the Croatian team after six of their
players were booked in the 1-0 defeat which condemned them to a
group stage exit.
UEFA will deal with the latest case on Sunday.
