Croatia deducted one European Qualifiers point

The Croatian Football Federation has received a point deduction for the European Qualifiers and has been ordered to play two matches behind closed doors.

The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body today decided to impose a deduction of one point on the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for the qualifying competition of the 2014–16 UEFA European Football Championship.

The HNS has also been ordered to play its next two home matches in UEFA competition behind closed doors and not to play any of its remaining qualifying games at the Stadion Poljud in Split. In addition, the HNS has been fined €100,000.

The HNS was facing charges for racist behaviour at last month's European Qualifiers Group H match against Italy in Split, a 1-1 draw.

An appeal must be made within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.
