Serbia against Albania was always going to be a match charged with tension – even that is an understatement – and so it proved on Tuesday night in Euro 2016 qualifying.
Due to historical and political differences going back many years, trouble was always likely.
Albania have eight Kosovar players in their team. Kosovo was part of Serbia, previously Yugoslavia, but declared its independence in 2008.
UEFA have made a serious error allowing these two countries to play each other in European Championship qualifying.
After 34 minutes, an Albanian flag was dropped onto the pitch by a drone. Players, officials, fans and police in clashes. No albanians allowed, it’s said 3500 Serbian police officers are on duty tonight. Few serbians arrested before match.
