FIFA says its disciplinary committee is considering opening a case.
“We always take any evidence or submissions to our disciplinary committee. It is the disciplinary committee that will meet,” a spokeswoman told The Guardian.

“If they see any grounds they will open proceedings. Then it is up to the disciplinary commission to take the decision.”
FIFA holds national football federations responsible for their fans’ behaviour inside stadiums.

Brazil’s organising committee spokesman Saint-Clair Milesi says the man, reportedly from Poland, was detained by local authorities. — Daily Mail.
