Croatia`s football body fined over pro-Nazi chants
Rome: The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has fined Croatia`s football body 80,000 euros after fans displayed Nazi symbols during a European championship qualifying match against Georgia.
In the resort city of Split, thousands of Croatian fans chanted fascist slogans, displayed banners, including a Nazi swastika, and glorified the Croatian Ustashes - the World War II fascist movement appointed by the Nazis.
"We are all Ustashes," the crowd chanted, violating UEFA rules which ban using sporting events for political purposes.
Croatia won the June 3 game 2-1 and was a step away from qualifying for next year`s European championship to be held in Poland and Ukraine.
