Soccer player receives 10-game ban for pro-Nazi chant

Published: 12.16.13, 19:39 / Israel News

Croatia defender Josip Simunic will miss the World Cup after being banned for 10 official matches for leading a pro-Nazi chant with fans after his team qualified for next year's finals in Brazil.

 

Simunic took up a microphone following Croatia's playoff match against Iceland and shouted to supporters: "For the homeland!" The fans responded: "Ready!" The call was used by the Croatian pro-Nazi puppet regime that ruled the state during World War II. (AP)
