Referee abandons Euro qualifier post #1  quote:



Sweden's Euro 2008 qualifier away to Denmark was abandoned after 89 minutes when a fan tried to attack the referee.
Denmark had fought back from 3-0 down to make it 3-3 when Herbert Fandel sent off Denmark defender Christian Poulsen.

After a spectator ran towards the referee and was intercepted by Danish players the official walked off.

Uefa say the result will not be confirmed until their disciplinary committee has read the referee's and delegate's reports from Copenhagen.

They could decide to award a 3-0 victory to the Swedes.

The match was in Group F, which is currently led by Northern Ireland.

Fandel was in charge of the Champions League final last month, which saw AC Milan beat Liverpool 2-1.

I think it's pretty bad that in this day and age we cannot guarntee players and offcials but you will always get one idiot who tries to ruin the game for everyone.

I can't honestly see how UEFA cannot give Sweden the win for 2 reason 1. It was a dane who led to the game being called off and 2. Sweden would most liley have converted the penalty and won the game. If UEFA call a draw then I can see this going to the courts.
