A Croatian civil servant is facing the sack for flashing her breasts during Croatia's 3-1 victory over Ireland at Euro 2012.
Photos of government clerk Jelena Miksa lifting her shirt and being fondled by an Ireland fan did the internet rounds after Croatia's win on Sunday.
Now, the Croatian Ministry of Culture says Miksa could be sanctioned for breaching the code of conduct for government employees.
"We have to react as a public sector employee should behave in line with the code," spokeswoman Natasa Petrinjak told the AFP.
Miksa, who travelled from the northern town of Krapina to attend Croatia's tournament opener in Poland, is unrepentant despite the prospect of losing her job.
"I don't regret anything ... for me the only important thing is how my squad played. Let's go on to win," she told the Vecernji List newspaper.
An ethical committee is expected to decide her fate by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, a man has been fined for throwing his television out the window in frustration during Poland's 1-1 draw with Russia.
"When Russia scored the first goal, the man was so overcome by emotion that he took his old television and simply chucked it out the window," a police spokesman told the AFP.
"Fortunately no one was around, so the television just fell, exploded, but no one was injured."
The man, who police say was uncooperative and very inebriated, was fined 500 zloty (AU$146).
