FIFA, the World Football governing body, has commenced an investigation into the Croatian team and federation as a whole following an incident that took place during their match against Nigeria on June 16.

The display of the banner of the Ustasha during the game at the Kaliningrad Stadium was reported by the British press.

The Ustasha – Croatian Revolutionary Movement- was a Croatian fascist, racist, ultranationalist and terrorist organization between 1929 and 1945 and fought for Croatia’s independence and dissolution of Yugoslavia.

Vukojevic, who scouted the Super Eagles and players before Croatia’s World Cup opener, was relieved of his duties by the Croatian Football Federation HNS and had his accreditation revoked.
