Romania has been asked to play their next home match behind closed doors as a punishment for “racist behaviour” by their supporters during a recent Uefa Nations League game against Serbia.

European football’s governing body announced the punishment on Friday.

The incidents happened during the 0-0 draw with Serbia in Bucharest on 14 October.

The game to be staged behind closed doors will be the Nations League fixture with Lithuania in Ploiesti on 17 November.

Uefa also handed the Romanian Football Federation a fine of 50,000 euros ($56,760), as well as a further fine of 23,000 euros for other incidents, with supporters setting off fireworks and invading the pitch in the same game.
