More than 200 Polish football fans were handed fines for public order offences for fighting each other in Skopjie ahead of Friday's Euro 2020 qualifier against North Macedonia, a court said.

"The 234 Polish nationals, involved in a massive fight in the center of Skopje, were not convicted in north Macedonia so Poland considered it as mitigating factor. They were sentenced to a pay a fine of €150 ($170) each," the court announced on Sunday.

The clash took place in a park near the Tose Proeski Arena where Poland beat North Macedonia 1-0 to remain unbeaten in their campaign.

Elsewhere a further 60 Polish citizens were arrested on Friday and Saturday for other incidents including vandalism but are still waiting to be questioned.
