Bulgaria to play next home game behind closed doors as racism sanction

Bulgaria have been ordered to play their next competitive home game behind closed doors with a further match suspended for two years following the racist behaviour of their fans during the Euro 2020 qualifier against England on October 14.

A section of supporters at the match in Sofia's Levski Stadium directed racial abuse at England's black players, while some were also seen making Nazi salutes.

The Bulgarian Football Union was also fined 75,000 euros (ยฃ64,641) for "the racist behaviour of its supporters and the throwing of objects".
