Baku. 15 November. REPORT.AZ/ Greece soccer officials have apologized to the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina after a fan's banner referred to the Srebrenica massacre at a World Cup qualifying match.
Report informs, in a statement Monday, the Greek soccer federation condemned the "unacceptable posting of a banner with fascist content, which it condemns in the most absolute and categorical way." A banner with the slogan "Noz, zica, Srebrenica" ("Knife, wire, Srebrenica" in Serbian) was displayed among Greece fans during the teams' 1-1 draw in Athens.
"The Greek Football Federation feels obliged to apologize, on behalf of those few who participated in this sectarian act, to the Bosnia-Herzegovina Football Federation and the friendly people of that country," the statement said.
