FIFA says Greek fans at the Nov. 15 match in Athens breached disciplinary rules, including one relating to ''contemptuous, discriminatory or denigratory words or actions.''

Fans' monitoring group Fare previously sent reports to FIFA of ''Nazi salutes performed by Greek fans during Greece's national anthem.''

Greece won the first-leg match 3-1 and completed a 4-2 aggregate win to advance to the World Cup in Brazil.

FIFA says it fined the Romanian Federation $55,750 for improper conduct by fans at the same match.
