FIFA has opened disciplinary cases against Kosovo and Croatia for anti-Serbia chants by fans during a World Cup qualifying match.

Fans of both teams were heard chanting ''Kill, kill the Serbs'' in their own language during Croatia's 6-0 win this month.

Kosovo's first competitive home game since joining FIFA in May was played in Shkodra, Albania, because the former province of Serbia does not yet have an approved stadium.

FIFA did not specify when it would rule on the case.

Croatia fans have already been barred from its first two home games in qualifying as FIFA punishment for previous incidents of offensive fan behavior.
