Punishments for three member nations

In a space of two days came the news for three associations that were penalized playing various tournaments.
Last week the world football organization issued couple of penalties. Because of homophobic chants against Costa Rica and Mexico from the fans for the World Cup qualifying 2022 competition, on 16 October Panama got sanctioned. Their next home game versus El Salvador have to be staged on empty stadium, and also the association had to deliver 50.000 Swiss francs (46.655 euros) as a financial fine. Out of the same reason their upcoming opponents (El Salvador) were punished as well because their spectators shouted bad words towards United States of America footballers. This time one part of the stadium have to be closed (against Jamaica) plus the association was penalized with 30.000 Swiss francs (27.993 euros).
With hundred thousand euros fine faced the English association from the European football confederation just two days later. A severeness penalty for this is fairly justified after the home hooligans stormed onto the arena at the final of the European championship (that was this summer) without tickets and caused plenty of incidents. England would have to complete two duels on empty stadia, of which one is suspended.
