Fifa approves fine 53000 dollars croatian national team

The International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) approved a fine against the Croatian national team, which reached the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, as a punishment for the behaviour of its fans towards Canadian goalkeeper Milan Burian during the two teams’ match in the group stage that ended with the victory of the first (4-1).

FIFA said, in a statement, that a disciplinary investigation imposed a fine of 50,000 Swiss francs on the Croatian Federation ($53,000) in connection with the behaviour of Croatian fans during the Croatia vs. Canada match in the FIFA World Cup on November 27.

Croatian fans insulted Milan Burian with offensive banners that targeted him during the match.

Croatia's penalty comes 48 hours before they face Brazil in the quarter-finals on Friday, 9 December 2022.

The Serbian Confederation was also the subject of a FIFA investigation and received a fine of 20,000 Swiss francs because of a controversial flag in which the Kosovo map was incorporated that was hanging in the team's dressing room during the group stage match against Brazil.
