Uefa has charged the Croatian Football Federation over racist behaviour by their fans during the team's 1-1 draw with Italy on 16 November.

In addition, Croatia faces charges over crowd disturbances and their fans setting off fireworks and throwing missiles at the San Siro Stadium.

Italy's FA has also been charged after their fans set off fireworks.

Referee Bjorn Kuipers was forced to twice stop the Euro 2016 qualifier and 16 Croatia supporters were arrested.

The case will be dealt with by Uefa's control, ethics and disciplinary body on 11 December.

Croatia coach Niko Kovac said after the game he expected punishment from European football's governing body.

"Of course Croatia will face sanctions, but there is no reason for any point deductions," said Kovac.

Croatia are currently top of Group H on 10 points and lead Italy, who have the same points, on goal difference.
