This evening’s Group A matches were overshadowed by two incidents involving incendiary fans. In England and Hungary, a racist incident was said to be the basis, in Albania and Poland the match was halted for a while after a rain of bottles poured from the home section.
Riots occurred in England and Hungary before the match. Police said a Hungarian fan racially insulted a flight attendant, but when they tried to arrest the man, the dolls started dancing.
In the end, it was just a matter of pushing, pulling and hitting (with or without the Matrak) and the rest came down pretty quickly. Anyway, the Hungarian fans are once again in disrepair, having not done well in the European Championship either.
The match itself ended in a draw, England’s first loss in a home qualifier in nearly 10 years.
Albanians suspend the match against Poland for a while
Due to England’s draw, Poland returned to the competition for a World Cup ticket directly in Group A. However, after the 0-1 win in Albania, it was mainly about the incident that caused the match to be suspended for about fifteen minutes.
The Poles went to celebrate Swiderski’s goal so close to the home fans and had to pay for it by showering the bottles that slid over the players from the stands.
Referee Hernandez called the players to calm things down and it worked. The match was played without incident, and nothing changed regarding the outcome.
