UEFA fines German FA 25,000 euros over supporters' neo-Nazi banner during Denmark clash

Die Mannschaft fans were also found deemed guilty of letting off fireworks and singing offensive songs during the Group B encounter in Lviv
UEFA has fined the German Football Association (DFB) 25,000 euros over the behavior of a section of their supporters during the national team's Euro 2012 clash with Denmark.

Die Mannschaft fans were accused of displaying a neo-Nazi banner during the Group B game in Lviv, as well as singing offensive songs and letting off fireworks.

The European game's governing body has now reprimanded the DFB, having found the country's fans guilty of "improper conduct".

"The German Football Association (DFB) has been fined €25,000 by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body," a statement released on Monday read. "The charges relate to the improper conduct of their supporters at the UEFA EURO 2012 Group B match against Denmark in Lviv on Sunday 17 June.

"An appeal can be lodged against this decision within 24 hours of the dispatch of the reasoned decision."

Germany won the game 2-1, with Lars Bender popping up with the winner with 10 minutes remaining after Michael Krohn-Dehli had earlier cancelled out Lukas Podolski's opener.

Russia and Croatia have previously been fined by UEFA over the actions of their supporters in Poland and Ukraine.
