Euro 2016: Romania hit with racism fine and stadium ban

Romanian fans in Budapest earlier this month.

Romania will play their next Euro 2016 qualifier behind closed doors after Uefa fined them for racist behaviour by supporters earlier this month.

Uefa fined the Romanian Football Federation a total of 110,000 euros (£80,000) for crowd trouble in games against Hungary and Greece.

Fans in Budapest disrespected the Hungarian anthem,external-link let off flares and clashed with rival fans.

Group F

In the home game against Greece they were punished for racist behaviour.

Romania - who are a point behind Northern Ireland in second place in Group F - will now play Finland in an empty stadium on 8 October.

With the top two sides in each group progressing to next summer's finals in France, Romania are well placed to qualify for a first major tournament since Euro 2008.
