Euro 2016: Serbia 0-3 Albania full match

The Group I game in Belgrade was interrupted when a banner displaying pro-Albanian symbols was flown over the terraces and pitch by what appeared to be a drone-cam.

Serbia defender Stefan Mitrovic eventually grabbed the banner – which is hugely inflammatory in the Balkans – prompting a melee involving numerous players.

Riot police then moved in when around a dozen fans invaded the pitch, trying to attack the Albanians, and the players were ordered off by Premier League referee Martin Atkinson.

After a delay of around 30 minutes the match was abandoned.

It was the first time Albania have played in Serbia since 1967, and away fans were banned from attending what was already a hugely charged match.

The match was locked at 0-0 when it was called off. Chelsea defender and Serbia captain Branislav Ivanovic said his team wanted to carry on playing, and that the decision to stop the match was ultimately taken by the Albanians.
