Croatia federation fined over racist fans
VIENNA, June 28 (Reuters) - Croatia's football federation has been fined for the racist behaviour of fans at the team's Euro 2008 quarter-final against Turkey, UEFA said on Saturday.
"Croatian fans were guilty of displaying a racist banner and showing racist conduct at the match," UEFA said in a statement.
Turkey won the June 20 game at the Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna 3-1 on penalties after a 1-1 draw following extra time.
Croatia were fined nearly 12,500 euros ($19,680) and have three days after they receive the reasons for the decision to appeal, UEFA added on its website www.uefa.com.
