Croatian Football Federation fined €80,000 for disciplinary incidents in Euro 2012 qualifier

Europe's football governing body has handed down the fine following crowd trouble during the nation's Euro qualifier against Georgia earlier this month

Uefa has fined the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for crowd misconduct and organisational misdemeanours during a Euro 2012 qualifier on June 3.

Croatia's match with Georgia in Split was brought under review because of a number of crowd disturbances including a pitch invasion. Fireworks and illicit banners were also used during the hosts’ 2-1 win.

The €80,000 fine imposed by Uefa’s Control and Disciplinary Body also includes the failure of the manufacturer's logo to be placed on the goalkeeper's gloves - a kit regulation - and overall insufficient organisation during the match.

Croatian football officials have three days to appeal against the decision, citing appropriate reasons for the crowd's actions.

The incident comes just four months after Uefa president Michel Platini and Croatian president Ivo Josipovic met to discuss violence and security issues in the country.

Uefa also fined the HNS in 2008 for racist behaviour of their supporters following a 2010 World Cup qualifier against England.
