Russia fined for neo-Nazi fan banner
    2018-07-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

RUSSIA’S soccer federation has been fined by FIFA because a fan displayed a neo-Nazi banner at a World Cup game.

FIFA’s disciplinary panel ordered the Russian soccer body to pay 10,000 Swiss francs (US$10,100) for a “discriminatory banner” at the team’s 3-0 loss to Uruguay in Samara.

FIFA and monitoring experts working at World Cup matches said the banner included the number 88, which is recognized as far-right code for “Heil Hitler” because H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.

In a separate case, FIFA fined Serbia’s federation for a second time at the World Cup for fans displaying a Chetnik banner celebrating a World War II nationalist group. Serbia must pay 20,000 Swiss francs for a disciplinary charge of showing a “political and offensive banner” during the team’s 2-0 loss to Brazil in Moscow on Wednesday.

FIFA invited monitors from the anti-discrimination group Fare to work at World Cup games for the first time.

FIFA said it also warned the Russian and Serbian federations, and also Brazil’s federation for unspecified incidents involving its fans at the same game.

Morocco’s soccer federation was fined 65,000 Swiss francs, and FIFA also warned winger Noureddine Amrabat for misconduct after a late Spain goal cost the team a group-stage victory. Amrabat directed an obscene comment about FIFA’s video review system at a television camera minutes after a stoppage-time goal by Spain forward Iago Aspas was allowed to stand in the 2-2 draw at Kaliningrad.

FIFA said one disciplinary charge related to six Morocco staffers who “forced their way into the pitch after the final whistle.”

Assistant coach Patrice Beaumelle was also warned.

Another charge was for crowd disturbances by Moroccan fans who threw objects in the stadium. (SD-Agencies)
