ALBANIA AND COSTA RICA FORCED TO SHUT OUT FANS

The decision follows crowd trouble in the Albania versus Ukraine and Costa Rica versus Mexico qualifiers.

In both cases fans threw objects, ranging from bottles of water and coins to lighters and even flagpoles, onto the pitch.

In addition, the Albanian Football Association has been fined CHF40,000 while the Costa Rica Association has been fined CHF20,000.

The Albanian FA had already been warned over poor crowd behaviour.
