Italy, Serbia cop punishment for rioting fans

1:55 pm on 30 October 2010

Italy were awarded a 3-0 win while Serbia must play two games behind closed doors, with one match suspended, after away fans rioted at a Euro 2012 football qualifier in Genoa this month.

A UEFA spokeswoman says the verdicts were not official yet but the Italian FA issued a statement outlining the measures UEFA's disciplinary committee had taken.

Italy were also hit with a suspended sentence of one game behind closed doors.
