The duo, standing by the touchline, encroached on to the pitch to celebrate Croatian defender Ante Puljic’s last-minute winner.

The FRF’s disciplinary commission stated the pair had contravened regulations and fined the pair 640 lei ($153.64) each.

“We were full of joy after the second goal but it’s normal to be happy, we’ve been Dinamo fans since we’re kids,” one of the suspended duo told local media.

($1 = 4.1655 lei)
