Vice President of the Ukrainian football federation has lashed out at FIFA and the Football against Racism in Europe group (FARE) for his country’s recent one match supporter ban.
FIFA ordered the national team play their next World Cup qualifier behind closed doors after their fans were accused by FARE of making monkey chants and performing Nazi salutes during their victory over San Marino.
FIFA also banned the Lviv stadium from hosting all qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup. A ban the Ukraine football federation insist they will appeal.
Sergiy Storozhenko said it was unfair to punish the masses due to a handful of troublemakers during the match at the Lviv Stadium.
