Bernard Devreese from Dilbeek in Flemish Brabant ran onto the pitch naked in what he later claimed was his attempt at a marriage proposal

18 December 2007 - European Football’s governing body UEFA has fined the Belgian Football Association 3,000 euros. The fine was issued as a punishment for what UEFA described as the “poor organisation” of Belgium’s home match against Armenia on 17 October.
With the score at 0-0 Bernard Devreese from Dilbeek in Flemish Brabant ran onto the pitch naked in what he later claimed was his attempt at a marriage proposal to his girlfriend. Devreese's somewhat foolhardy action was the turning point in a match that ended in a 3-0 victory for the Belgians.

Most people, including the players laughed it off.

However, UEFA was not so understanding and European football’s governing body has now issued the Belgian FA with a 3,000-euro-fine.

The FA has said that it will try get Mr Devreese to give it the money to pay the fine as he was responsible for the incident that led to it being imposed.
