Croatia fined for Ireland incidents

The Croatian Football Federation was fined 25,000 euros by UEFA for "spectator incidents" during their Euro 2012 Group C match against Ireland on Sunday.


"The sanction has been imposed for the setting-off and throwing of fireworks and missiles, and a pitch invasion by a supporter," European soccer's governing body said in a statement.

Croatian fans celebrated their second goal during the 3-1 victory in Poznan by letting off firecrackers and flares.

A supporter dressed in his country's national team shirt also appeared to come out of the stands and gave Croatia coach Slaven Bilic a kiss on the lips in front of the team bench.
