Russia tells fans to behave

Russia's football union Thursday told fans to be on their best behaviour after the country was fined and threatened with a six-point deduction from the next Euro qualifying campaign because of rowdy supporters.

European football's governing body UEFA slapped a 120,000-euro ($150,000) fine on the union on Wednesday after Russian supporters threw fireworks during their Group A opener against the Czech Republic in Poland last week.

"The Football Union of Russia stands firmly against expressions of violence both inside and outside stadiums," it said in a message posted on its website.

"We ask all Russian fans to show restraint and act in accordance with the rules adopted by UEFA," it stressed.
