UEFA have opened fresh disciplinary proceedings against the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for incidents during Monday's Euro 2012 Group C game with Spain.
The HNS were fined £65,000 by UEFA for 'the setting-off and throwing of fireworks and the improper conduct of supporters (racist chants, racist symbols)' at Thursday's match against Italy.
UEFA have now opened a new case into the improper conduct of both the Croatian fans and also the players during the country's 1-0 defeat to the Spanish in Gdansk.
Trouble flaring: Croatia fans during their team's loss in Gdansk on Monday
A UEFA statement read: 'UEFA has today opened disciplinary proceedings against the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for the setting-off and throwing of fireworks, and the improper conduct of supporters (display of racist banners and symbols) at the EURO 2012 Group C match against Spain in Gdansk on Monday.
'The disciplinary case also involves the improper conduct of the team (six Croatian players received a yellow card during the match).'
The case will be dealt with on Sunday, June 24.
UEFA punished the HNS for offences which included the racist abuse of Italy striker Mario Balotelli by between 300 and 500 of the country's fans during Thursday's game in Poznan, which was also dogged by accusations a banana had been thrown on to the field.
