CROATIA : Football Group Gets 80,000 Euro Fine For Racist Fans.


      Croatia's football association was fined 80,000/$100,000 because its fans abused an African player for Italy in Euro 2012.
      The UEFA said Croatian fans shot fireworks, sported racial symbols and chanted racial epithets at forward Mario Balotelli of Ghana during a match with Italy in Poznan, Poland.
       It is the first fine for racism in Euro 2012.
       Croatia has been eliminated from the tourney.
