    So they're under investigation again, after the Spanish match. Probably another fine that this time might exceed Bendtner's boxer shorts.

    It's time to mete out some real punishment such as having to play all qualifiers at a neutral venue or something like that.

    What are the Croatian authorities themselves doing about it, do you know? Also, what provisions were in place at the Euros to identify and ban the racists? Uefa are culpable in this too, which is part of the problem, from what I can see - they should be fining themselves too.

    "for displaying racist symbols". What? Their kit and flag?

    Bilic slagged them off, saying they are unrepresentative. Don't know what the suits are saying.
    UEFA have at least been co-ordinating (or maybe it's paying lip service) with FARE - www.farenet.org
    It's the stupid "punishments" that rile me.
    This is the 3rd of 4th time charges have been brought against Croatia. Time for them to play their home games in the Faroe Islands or something like that.

    To be fair to the Croatian fans its probably taken them by surprise that UEFA are pretending to give a bit of a fuck, they've never in the past.

    actually their flag DOES have racist connections - genocidal ones. It is based on the banner that the Ustashe had in WW2
