Croatia find for the violence and nearly blinding a Steward £77k yes just £77k what an absolute Joke UEFA are
Walt what would have been a fair punishment in your eyes?
Not having a go at you mate but there are some unusual circumstances surrounding the Croatian situation in that a small faction of hooligans are deliberately doing all in their power to have Croatia punished and kicked out of the Euros as an act of retribution to the criminal dealings of the current Croatian FA and it's presidency.
Some facts of the matter are that the Croatian FA got wind that a small group of dickheads will be attempting to storm the field and throw flares on the pitch towards the end of the match. The FA notified local authorities and UEFA in advance hence if you watched the game and would have noticed the police moving in to create a barricade in front of the section of the fans where the flares were thrown. This was around the 80th minute mark flares were thrown some minutes later.
I am not sure what the adequate punishment is here to be honest, I am not making excuses for these scumbags but would a draconian punishment really be a fair one because of a handful of idiots?
Word is they are planning another round of disruptions in tomorrow's match against Span, I am flabbergasted as to how they got the flares in the first place. Again unofficially this was arranged prior to the game with some hooligans bragging on facebook the seat numbers where the flares were to be placed.
If these wankers can arrange for pyrotechnics to be smuggled in to a game then God knows what else others are capable of bringing in to the stadium.
