A report has been opened after the incidents with the fans of Hungary and Albania during the world qualification matches: “Stop the sentence, let’s analyze the report and we will take action”
From Wembley to Tirana, incidents and unrest have involved fans of Hungary and Albania during the qualifying matches for the World Cup. At Wembley Stadium, Hungarian fans clashed with police in the stands on Tuesday after the kick-off of the match against England (which ended 1-1), as officials tried to arrest a spectator on charges of having racially abused a steward. And the match between Albania and Poland (Group I) was suspended for around 20 minutes after Swiderski, who had just scored for Poland in the 77th minute, was hit by a bottle thrown by the Albanian fans. The Poland players moved away but returned to the pitch and held out with a 1-0 win.
“Fifa is currently analyzing the reports of last night’s World Cup qualifying matches in order to determine the most appropriate action,” said a statement. FIFA strongly condemns the incidents in England and Albania and wishes to affirm that its position remains firm and resolute in rejecting any form of violence – continues Zurich – as well as any form of discrimination or abuse. Fifa has a very clear zero tolerance position against such repugnant behavior in football ”.
