UEFA reveal Serbia sanctions, Italy awarded 3-0 win

Italy have been awarded a 3-0 win against Serbia in the UEFA Euro 2012 Qualifying encounter that was abandoned due to crowd trouble earlier this month. Serbia have been further punished and they will play their next home game behind closed doors after their fans caused chaos in Genoa forcing the game to be called off after just six minutes.
UEFA have also sanctioned the FIGC with a fine of €100,000 and game behind closed doors conditional to the recurrence of such events. The Serbian FA meanwhile face a €150,000 fine and a two game home suspension, one of which is again conditional to the repetition of such chaos caused by their fans. Both parties have until Monday to contest the decision.
At the meeting in Nyon, the committee heard from the match referee Craig Thomson, FIGC director Antonello Valentini and other representatives. Thomson reiterated that the havoc caused by the Serbian ultras made the environment highly risky to carry on and Valentini stated ‘they had done all they could to avoid another Heysel’.
The result sees Italy continue to top Group C with 10 points from four games while Serbia stay fifth with four points from their four games. The next round of qualifiers will take place at the end of March.
