Romania to play behind closed doors after 'racist behaviour' of fans

A series of incidents during a 0-0 draw in Serbia have resulted in Romania being forced to shut their stadium for their next UEFA match.

Romania will have to play their next Nations League game behind closed doors following a sanction from UEFA over the "racist behaviour" of their fans.

The Romanian Football Federation was also fined €50,000 and ordered to pay an additional €23,000 after supporters set off fireworks and invaded the pitch in a 0-0 draw against Serbia on October 14.

Omnisport understands the "racist behaviour" relates to incidents targeting neighbouring country Hungary, a banner linking refugees to terrorism and the emergence of a video in which a slogan in support of Serbia's territorial claim to Kosovo is chanted.

Romania are scheduled to play Nations League Group C4 rivals Lithuania in Ploiesti on November 17.
