Uefa slaps racism fine on Croatia

Croatian fans let off a flare at the game against Turkey
Uefa was unhappy with the behaviour of some Croatian fans

Croatia's football federation has been fined nearly 10,000 over the racist behaviour of some of the team's fans during the Euro 2008 game with Turkey.

European football's governing body Uefa imposed the fine after the fans were found guilty of "displaying a racist banner and showing racist conduct."

Uefa's website said once the federation was informed of the reasons for the decision, it had three days to appeal.

Turkey won 3-1 on penalties after the game finished 1-1 after extra time.
