During Croatia's 4-1 win over Canada, a banner reading "Knin '95 - no runner like Borjan" was displayed in the stands, while chants were also said to be offensive.
Borjan described the abuse as "a start" after the match, while FIFA announced it would open an investigation.
FIFA's disciplinary proceedings ended with the decision to fine the Croatian Football Association 50,000 Swiss francs.
The German football association has decided that coach Hansi Flick will remain the coach of the German national team after the disgrace of the World Cup.

But the German association has decided that Hansi Flick will remain the coach of the German national team until his contract expires.
Coach Hansi Flick has a contract with the German team until the summer of 2024 and will continue to coach the national team for the next few years.
