GENOA, Italy (AP) — Four of the eight Serbian fans arrested for violence during a European Championship qualifier have made a plea bargain whereby they will be released from jail but banned from Italy for five years.

The ANSA news agency says the four other fans, including alleged ringleader Ivan Bogdanov, face a trial next month.

UEFA awarded Italy a 3-0 win over Serbia after the match in October was stopped in the seventh minute with the score at 0-0 after Serbia supporters threw flares and fireworks onto the field, burned an Albanian flag and broke barriers, then clashed with police outside the stadium.

UEFA also ordered Serbia to play its home match against Northern Ireland on March 25 in an empty stadium.

Platini threatens Serbia with ban due to hooligans.

BELGRADE (AFP) – UEFA chief Michel Platini warned Belgrade on Thursday its national squad and teams could be banned from international competitions if Serbia does not root out violence among football supporters.
At the meeting with Serbian President Boris Tadic, Platini said that should "violent and criminal behaviour by hooligans continue, Serbian teams and national squad will be excluded from all European competitions," said a statement from the presidency.
A Euro 2012 qualifier against Italy in Genoa last October was abandoned after just six minutes following crowd trouble, instigated by hardcore Serbian hooligans, who threw flares onto the pitch.

The hooligans then clashed with local police in a series of incidents that ended with 16 injured on both sides. Several Serbs were sentenced to prison terms, while others were expelled from Italy and banned from entering the country for five years.

"We are aware of the problems we have with hooligans in Serbia and we are ready for a final clash against them," Tadic said in a statement.

"We will work together with UEFA in order for the ugly incidents from Genoa not to happen ever again. This was a shame for our country," he added.

A rise of violence among hardcore football fans presents a serious challenge to Belgrade, harming its image and attempts to join the European Union.

In September 2009, a French football fan was brutally beaten here ahead of his team's match with Partizan Belgrade. He later died from his injuries, while the 12 hooligans received sentences for first degree murder of up to 35 years in prison in January.

The incident came as the first Gay Pride was to be held in Serbia, which was later cancelled due to fears of violence by hardcore football fans, mostly supporters of ultranationalist parties.

But a year later, hundreds of them clashed with police securing the 2010 Gay pride parade in Belgrade, in a series of violent attacks that left several dozen injured on both sides.

In a bid to root out hooliganism among football fans, the authorities amended the country's Criminal Law allowing a 30-day detention for suspects investigated for violent acts punishable with up to five years in prison.

Later on Thursday, Platini visited Croatia and told its President Ivo Josipovic that European football's governing body has given a year-long deadline to the former Yugoslav republic to "ensure that matchs be held without any violence by football supporters."

"If this is not ensured, Croatia's Football Federation is threatened to be excluded from UEFA," the statement from Josipovic's office quoted Platini as saying.

Josipovic said the Croatian government has prepared a "new law that should contribute to solving the problem" of violence among football supporters, the statement said.

He added he would demand that all state institutions ensure measures be taken "in order to put an end to violence at Croatia's stadiums."

Croatian hardcore football fans often clash with the police, especially when the main rival teams, Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split, play the national league matches.

Serbian Ivan Bogdanov sentenced to jail

GENOA, Italy -- A Serbian fan has been convicted for instigating a riot at a European Championship qualifier in Italy in October, receiving a jail sentence of three years, three months.

Wearing a black mask to cover his face, 29-year-old Ivan Bogdanov climbed onto a barrier separating fans from the field, used a wire cutter to slice apart a mesh fence and launched fireworks onto the field as he encouraged other Serbian fans to do the same.

European soccer's governing body awarded Italy a 3-0 win over Serbia after the Oct. 12 match was stopped in the seventh minute with the score 0-0. The Union of European Football Associations also ordered Serbia to play its March 25 home match against Northern Ireland in an empty stadium.

Three other Serbian fans received slightly shorter sentences at the trial in Genoa, with charges ranging from resisting public officials to damaging public property, as well as violating rules for behavior inside stadiums, the ANSA news agency said.

Four other Serbia fans agreed to a plea bargain last month in which they were released from jail and banned from Italy for five years.

Bogdanov and the other fans on trial have been held in Genoa since the match.
