Croatia fined for Canada goalkeeper incidents

FIFA have opened disciplinary action against Croatia for aggressive taunts towards Canada goalkeeper Milan Borjan. Borjan originally lived in Serbia but fled during the Croatian war of independence, after his hometown was famously taken in a battle between Serbian separatists and Croatian forces. 

Croatia fans targeted the shot-stopper with a John Deere flag, saying 'No one runs like Borjan' referencing the fleeing Serbs who left Croatia in a convoy of John Deere tractors. The fans also chanted 'Borjan is an Ustase' which is referencing a fascist party which collaborated with the Nazi party. It was also reported that the keeper's personal telephone number was leaked to Croatia fans following the game, and he received over 2000 insulting texts.

It is expected that the Croatian federation will be fined for the actions of their fans.
