UEFA Fines Bring Russia's Euro Total To More Than $230,000
Published June 25, 2012
MORE SANCTIONS: The Portugal Football Federation faces disciplinary action after one of its fans attempted to get on the field of play during the country's Euro quarter-final win over the Czech Republic. The case will be heard on Monday (AFP, 6/23).
BANNED: A Liverpool fan has been banned from football for four years after being found guilty of racially abusing ManU supporters and their club skipper Patrice Evra. Phillip Gannon, 58, was seen "on live television doing a racially offensive monkey impression." The banning order will stop Gannon from attending all Liverpool and England games and "also bans him from Liverpool city centre four hours before and after a match." He was also fined £180 ($281) and "ordered to pay" prosecution costs of £300 ($468) (LIVERPOOL ECHO, 6/22).
