FIFA FIFA president Gianni Infantino has been fined by a Swiss judge for his role in the 3-0 defeat of the Italy team.
The incident was revealed in a video made available on social media by FIFA, but it was only released after a request from the Italian press.
Infantinos penalty kick for Italy in the second leg of their quarter-final clash with Belgium was awarded to the Netherlands team.
It was the second time this season Infantini has been criticised by FIFA.
In the 3rd round of the Confederations Cup in France in June, he was suspended for a month for what was described as a “mistake”.
The suspension came after Infantinas behaviour towards the referee.
Infants behaviour on that occasion was also criticised by the International Rugby Board.
Infantes response was described by one Italian media outlet as “unacceptable”.
In the video, Infantines reaction towards the ref, Gianni Totti, was described with the words “totti, totti, I am a human being”.
Infantina has previously been criticised for failing to get the full number of his players for the match against Belgium, with the number on the pitch being incorrectly called five by Infantin.
The number 5 has been used as the official team number by Italy.
Infantoins explanation was criticised by some for the lack of transparency in his explanation.
“It was a very poor and ill-judged decision by Infants team captain, the captain of his team and Infantinia,” wrote Italy Football Weekly.
“The referee should have known better, but he did not.”
The incident in the penalty shootout took place during the 2nd leg of the quarter-finals in Brussels.
Belgium scored twice in the first minute, and Italy equalised in the 13th minute, but Infantiani’s side did not score again.
