Havoc At Serbia-Albania As Match Interrupted By Flag-Carrying Drone

Officials suspended today's Serbia-Albania Euro 2016 qualifier in Belgrade after a drone carrying a large banner with the Albanian flag entered the stadium late in the first half and sparked a brawl between the two squads.


The match had already been stopped for flares being thrown onto the pitch when the drone entered carrying the banner, which was then grabbed by Serbia's Stefan Mitrović. That sparked a fight, and the eventual departure from the pitch of Albanian players who were pelted by garbage by the hometown fans. Albanian supporters were banned from attending due to security concerns.

The match is expected to be resumed shortly Never mind, the match was abandoned.
