The Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) has been fined by FIFA at EUR 50,000 for the behavior of fans who attacked England goalkeepers Robert Green and David James with a barrage of flares at the game in the Dnipro Arena (Dnipropetrovsk) on October 10.

Commenting on the FIFA decision, FFU first vice president Serhiy Storozhenko said 'next time the fine will be more severe', National radio reported.

The game was played out in a tense atmosphere in Dnipropetrovsk, with referee Damor Skomina at one point threatening to abandon the game if any more flares were thrown on to the pitch after a second hold up in play. The game was only two minutes on the way when the first barrage of flares came flying on, with many landing in the vicinity of England keeper Green.
