Uefa hands out bans and fines
Uefa has got tough with both players and fans in their latest Euro 2000 disciplinary crackdown.
Turkish defender Alpay Ozalan has been banned for three games after being sent off in his country's 2-0 quarter-final defeat by Portugal.
Uefa also suspended Romania's veteran midfielder Gheorghe Hagi for one game after he was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 2-0 defeat by Italy.
Alpay was dismissed after striking out at Portugal's Fernando Couto in retaliation after they clashed and fell to the ground.
The Turkish national federation was handed a a fine of 12,000 Swiss francs (£5,000) as a result of players' and supporters' behaviour during the match against Portugal.
Firecrackers and flares
"The control and disciplinary body noted that Turkish supporters set off firecrackers in the 53rd, 56th and 58th minutes of the match," a Uefa bulletin said.
Turkey also had three players cautioned in addition to the sending-off.
Portugal have to pay a fine of 5,000 Swiss francs (£2,000) as a result of the five cautions shown to their players during the game and the setting off of a smoke bomb by their fans.
