EU opens disciplinary measures against Romania on racist slogans

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The Romanian football federation (UEFA) announced on Friday the opening of disciplinary measures against the Romanian football federation (FIGC) for “racist behavior” during the match against Sweden on November 15, when Swedish striker Alexander Isaac was subjected to racist chants.

The referee suspended the match, which ended in a 2-0 victory over Sweden and reached the Euro 2020, for a short period because of racist chants from the Romanian fans.

“After the investigation, a disciplinary action has been opened” by the federation’s disciplinary committee, WEFA said in a statement Friday.

At the end of last October, UEFA punished Bulgaria by forcing them to play two closed-door matches, one of which was suspended, after the Bulgarian fans chanted racist slogans against England players during their meeting on the 14th of the same month in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. , Which sparked outrage and negative reactions in Britain.
