UEFA Award Italy 3-0 Win Over Serbia After Fan Trouble

UEFA's disciplinary commission has awarded Italy a 3-0 win over Serbia for the abandoned Euro 2012 qualifier earlier this month.

Fan trouble saw the game in Genoa called off after just six minutes after it became evident safety on and off the pitch was compromised by Serbian ultras who went on the rampage.

And, after gathering to hear evidence from the match officials and delegates on Friday, the chiefs at UEFA headquarters in Nyon have handed Italy the win.

The story is too old to be commented.

I find it sad that Serbia is puished after stupid fan behaviour. Nothing to do with football- and after all it was the Italians responsibilty , since the macth was supposed to be playes in Italy. After all, its just sad!

this is a good idea actaully, the italian FA could pay italian supporters to pose as thier opponents, make trouble, win 3-0 and not even kick a ball.

Same kind of thing happened some years ago (2008 I think) between Denmark and Sweden. A fan ran onto the pitch to punch the ref and the match was abandoned. I think it was Sweden that was awarded a 3-0 win, though I could be wrong.
