UEFA has deducted one point from Croatia in its European Championship qualifying group after a swastika was painted on the field before a match against Italy. UEFA says Croatia must also play its next two home qualifiers in an empty stadium. It hosts Bulgaria in October. UEFA also barred Croatia playing qualifiers in Split, which hosted the 1-1 draw with Italy on June 12. The Croatian football federation must also pay a 100,000 euro ($110,000) fine.
