World football’s governing body, FIFA, has descended heavily on the Polish Football Association after Poland fans displayed political and offensive banners during the their Russia 2018 World Cup tournament opener against Senegal in Group H.
Poland were beaten 2-1 by the West Africans at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Grzegorz Krychiowak getting the lone goal for the Europeans.
The Polish FA were fined to the tune of 10,000 Swiss Francs ($10,122) according to the announcement made by the football body’s Disciplinary Committee on Sunday in Moscow.
The committee also revealed that it has opened disciplinary proceedings against both the Argentina Football Association (AFA) and the Croatia FA due to crowd trouble from their Group D clash on Thursday night.
There were several crowd disturbance incidents involving both set of fans during the match played at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod.
