Zurich - The Netherlands and Spain have been fined by FIFA for their players' poor discipline in a bad-tempered Soccer World Cup final.

FIFA said on Tuesday the Dutch federation must pay 15 000 Swiss francs ($14 480) after eight different players received yellow cards, and defender John Heitinga was booked a second time and sent off.

English referee Howard Webb showed five yellow cards to Spain, getting its federation a 10 000 francs ($9 650) fine.

FIFA's disciplinary code has a clause on team misconduct calling for a federation to be fined when at least five of its players are sanctioned in a match.

Spain won 1-0 in the July 11 final, on Andres Iniesta's extra-time goal after the Netherlands were reduced to 10 players.
