Germany cited over fans hurling paper missiles

BY foxsports • June 10, 2012

UEFA has cited Germany after fans threw crumpled paper balls at Portugal players during a European Championship match.

UEFA says Portugal has also been cited for delaying the second-half kickoff on Saturday at Lviv, Ukraine.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will deal with the cases Thursday.

Portugal players were pelted with dozens of grapefruit-sized paper missiles during the first half of Germany's 1-0 victory.

A stadium announcement warned Germany's fans that their team would be punished if they continued the barrage.
