Portugal players were pelted with dozens of grapefruit-sized paper balls during the first half of Germany's 1-0 win last Saturday in Lviv, Ukraine.

UEFA rules make national associations responsible for their fans' behavior inside stadiums.

UEFA also fined the Portuguese federation €5,000 ($6,275) because the team was late for the second half.
