Two Russian fans were each slapped with a two-year ban from watching football in Poland for ignoring requests by security personnel at their side's with the Czech Republic, police said on Sunday.
"The ban was imposed Sunday by a court in (the western city of) Wroclaw against a 27-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman," police spokesman Kamil Rynkiewicz said, adding that the pair must also pay a 2,000-zloty (460-euro, $575) fine.
Meanwhile in Poznan, western Poland, where Ireland take on Croatia Sunday, police said they had detained 14 fans, including 10 Poles, four Irishmen and one Croat after an overnight smash-up in the city's historic central square.
Police were still trying Sunday to identify and detain Russia supporters who beat up four Polish volunteer ground stewards at the ground.
