UEFA probes Croatia fans Nazi banners


Fri Jun 27, 12:20 PM EDT

UEFA is investigating racist behavior by Croatia soccer fans at their team's European Championship quarterfinal against Turkey.

Disciplinary officials of the European governing body are looking into reports Croatia fans displayed Nazi-style banners and made racist chants at the game, which the Turks won on a penalty-kicks shootout after a 1-1 draw in Vienna on June 20.

``We are looking into allegations concerning the Croatia fans at the Croatia-Turkey match involving Nazi-style banners and chanting,'' UEFA spokesman Rob Faulkner said Friday. ``The matter is being dealt with by our disciplinary authority and no more details will be announced until tomorrow.''

The Croatian Football Federation denounced the behavior of the fans,

``Such a behavior is not a characteristic behavior of true Croatian fans, who showed good behavior and friendly relation to other fans throughout the championship,'' the federation said on its Web site.

The federation also said it and the team congratulated Turkey on its victory. It added the federation participates in FIFA and UEFA's actions against racism.

"Arguing with someone who hates you or your ideas, is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what move you make, your opponent will walk all over the board and scramble the pieces".

My bolding.

my experience: i went to one local game between the Sydney Croats vs Sydney Greek soccer teams and they pulled out those f*kn Nazi's flags and chanting 'utashe' , chucking bottles at us amongts other things (some how skopians flags and serbs flags turned up). The thing is,  exreme 'hard core' nationalist are alway at these games, though i never saw any issues between us and the Italians. With the croats their hard core do flaunt/tuant that whole Nazi WW2 history.Angry

Thats why i was going for Turkey

They are like forum trolls, every team has them, some more than others - even though Croatia is my favourite European team after Scotland, just threaten an out and out ban and go thru with it if they don't behave.  That's what happened to england in the late 80s I believe and it has largely worked.

Maybe they were Jews? It was a sacred symbol for them at one time?
