Serbia appeal against Italy win

Posted on 30/10/2010


The Serbian Federation has announced it will appeal against the 3-0 result handed to Italy in their abandoned Euro 2012 qualifier.

UEFA awarded Italy the victory after the October 12 match was abandoned due to Serbian hooligans throwing objects on the pitch.

“The Italian lobby did its job in order to get this result, but we are not satisfied with UEFA’s verdict, especially the 3-0 defeat,” said FSS President Tomislav Karadzic.

Serbia were also ordered to play two home games behind closed doors, although the second is a suspended sentence.

The FSS was fined €120,000 and they are barred from buying away tickets for their fans.

Italy were handed a suspended sentence of a one-match home ban if there is further trouble.
