After the racist attack on Isak - Uefa, investigation begins

During Sweden's European qualifying match against Romania, Alexander Isak was subjected to racism from parts of the home audience. Now Uefa has started an investigation into the incident.



Sweden led by 2-0 against Romania in Bucharest and stormed the European advancement when the mockery of racism took place.
Parts of the home crowd started screaming acoustic and racist words to Alexander Isak. A golf ball was also thrown against the striker and the match was temporarily suspended.

"What happens to Alexander is completely inexcusable," said Uefa's vice president and chairman of the Swedish Football Association, Karl-Erik Nilsson.

Now Uefa has started an investigation to investigate the incident. UEFA's disciplinary committee will also review other events during the match. This applies, among other things, to unauthorized banners, unauthorized frames and pyrotechnics.

- We welcome, of course, that they open an investigation and that it is started. This is positive, says SvFF's chairman Karl-Erik Nilsson to Sportbladet.

After the match, Alexander Isak told SVT Sport:

- I heard racist screams, but I told the referee he didn't have to break the match. You should not let, forgive, idiots influence one and get what they want.

Earlier this year, Romania was punished precisely for racism. Then they got a cure note of SEK 900,000 and were forced to play the match against Norway before empty stands, but instead they went around the system, and there were 30,000 spectators in place.
