There were amazing scenes at the Serbia v Albania clash tonight with the game abandoned after a a drone carrying the Albania flag flew above the pitch at the Stadion Partizana in Belgrade.

It’s the first time Albania have visited Belgrade since 1967 but none of the country’s fans were allowed to attend tonight.

The crazy incidents were charted by freelance football writer Nick Ames on Twitter who was in attendance at the game.

It’s believed a drone flew over the stadium with the Albania flag hanging from it and all hell broke loose forcing English referee Martin Atkinson to suspend the heated clash.

Fans invaded the pitch with some players physically assaulted before both teams fled for the dressing rooms and the game was later abandoned.

Ames tweeted the following:

This video shows the moment the drone flew over the stadium:

  1. Although this is very heavy provocation from Albanians for which they should maybe even beven be suspended, somehow it will again blow in the face of Serbs and it will once again be Serbain team to suffer great consequences..

    • No. There is no Alabanian Tiffos. There are only Serbs

    • Lo u a dic.k how is a flag provocation

      Reply
      • there should be any objects on the felled any way. Albanian player ATTACKING Serbian player REMOVING OBJECT is PROVOCATION !

      • That flag isn’t the flag of Albania. It’s the flag of ”Greater Albania” which includes parts of Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Greece and Macedonia, essentially an iredentist, nationalist, borderline nazi concept which was concieved sometime in the early 20th century and almost fully achieved during WW2 when Albanians sided with the Italian fascists and Nazis.

      • Showing the flag of Albania is not a provocation. However, presenting the flag of GREATER Albania – the ideology of which is taking over the land of ALL countries around Albania and annexing it to ALB state – IS a provocation, especially when you let it fly across the stadium in the middle of the game.

    • And throwing flares and whatnot at our players before that was fine with you, since you didn’t mention it? And 14000 got threatened by a flag so they decided to run over the pitch and hit our players in the face. Get out of here.

    • Give me one example when a flag was considered as a provocation. If there wasnt the flag sure would have been something else. Come on deep deep deep inside u know that is a pile of shite. Move away from the smell and let your brain talk sense

  2. Lets remember that it was the Serbian fans who started throwing flares at Albanian players in the first place.

    Reply
    • They started to throw flares because they wanted to send signal to players that something is happening. The drone came in first with “Kosovo Independence” flag, and that was the trigger.

      • Fuck you idiot. the fucking serb cunts better not come or they will be going in hell.

      • There is no other way to communicate right, so let’s throw stuff on the pitch. PLEASE

        I challenge you with the next piece of bullshit you will come up, as an excuse. The dog ate my book and had to tell mami to change my diaper

      • NO! It would be as dumb and moronic as this! You have to be really sad ass to perform a stunt like this, crappy low life. Remember that Serbian fan a**hole in Italy who climbed the fence? Same type of scum. EXTRA: The drown came from outside the stadium, but the remote was held by couple of Albanian fans in Albanian Box. Serbian police didn’t want to let them go onto the stadium but some diplomats insisted!

      • Dear Peter

        That wouldn’t happen in Albania, I guarantee you that. :))
        Plus we are sorry that Serbia didn’t kill all Albanians and that flag is a reminder of their Hitler like behaviour and the fucking evil they caused to a lot of souls.

        So Boohoo a flag made the little boys cry, all those families are due an apology by that country.

    • That’s not a flag,that’s a map that if it was for real,it would mean that many Serbs,Macedonians,Montenegrins and Greeks would be dead or in exile,so yes it provokes me.

  5. Provocation was planned, staged and well directed. Serbian player grabbed flag and drone to remove it and then he was attacked by two albanian players who stole the flag, and then everything else happened. Considering very tight situation between serbs and albanians in recent history, this provocation is extremely heavy – Kosovo Independence flag in centre of Serbian capital and then attack for the flag by albanian players (Serbian player was not tearing the flag, he was just holding it). For the sake of football I think Serbia and Albania shouldn’t have been placed in the same group. There is no place for politics on the field. But tomorrow noone will be talking about provocation, the drone and albanian players, everyone will be talking only about couple of serbian “fans” who came on the field.. The whole idea is to suspend Serbia from qualifications. And since Serbia never makes some good result on Euros it’s not big loss.. :/

    • it was not just a grab, look at the video the 2 Albanians went there protecting the national flag. Where the FUCK are your eyes?? CHECK AND YOUR FUCKING EARS AND TRY TO TRANSLATE WHAT WERE THEY SAYING INTO THE serbian STADIUM!!!!

      • It wasn’t the flag of Albania. It was black flag with map of Kosovo with Albanian crest, but you Albanians are so ignorant that you don’t even know how your flag looks like. They weren’t defending the flag of their country but politics of Greater Albania!!!

    • It was clear to see how the flag was handled, and yes all those Serbians there had a choice, to be civil but they can’t hide who they really are.

      Albania feels sorry that they felt they needed to protect themselves agains 24 people and a flag. I feel sorry for them, throwing things on the pitch, shouting kill Albanians, it must be post hard.

      I wonder how they will shit each others face when they will be surrounded by millions of Albanians and more flags.

  11. If it wasn’t for the guy who had grabbed the flag, I think you know what the Serbian player would have done with it. Just stop and think about it, would the Serbian player just hand the flag into safe hand. I get where your coming from, but Albanians have been treated unfairly for a very long time now, so they are done with being treated unjust, and will protect there country no matter what. Even if it’s the small things.

    • When you wave a red fabric against a cow he follows it. But you are supposed to be humans. Can you take a second and think : It is a provocation; I am not a cow to follow it. Does not matter what fabric Albanians used, and if they would put Serbia within Albania ,you or your friends failed to reason, and this is not good for human beings. An intelligent person always finds time to think and reason. You failed to show you are humans.

  18. It doesn’t matter whose to blame for the fighting and the game being abandoned, it’s UEFA’s fault for putting Serbia and Albania in the same group. Anyone that knows anything at all about history would know that their matches would never go over good. This is just as ridiculous as putting Russia and Ukraine in the same group would be. The ethnic tensions are too wild to play a civilized game and I don’t blame them.

    • Do you even know what you’re saying? You were all calling Serbia out on the idea of “greater Serbia” that covered all the teritories where Serbs lived for centuries, but when you bring out your WWII boarders flag,being alies to nazi Germany, that’s ok. Not in my city, not in Belgrade, not in Serbia, not any more. We lost over million people in the WWII only, and you were always on the side of the agrresors, wheter they were Turkish Austro-Hungarian, or German. I know you existed on the balkan for a long long time, but so have we, and we are not going to give you a cm of our land.

  39. Facts:
    1. Every albanian that was not part of the delegation and would enter the stadium would have been arrested and prosecuted! Notice given 2 days prior to the game!

    2. The entire stadium whistled the albanian national anthem! No wonders why, they’re serbians after all

    2. The serbian were chanting “die albanians, die” from the first minute of the game. Who cares?!

    3. The serbians were quite happy with their team for the first 20 mins as they were actually playing way better than we were!

    4. After the 20mins the albanian team rallied and were playing much better. In the first corner the albanians had the serbs starting throwing flares.

    5. Sometime before the 40th minute a flag carrying the Albanian symbols with written word “Authoctones” carried by a drone showd up in the sky and the serbs throwd flares in the field.

    6. A serbian player caught the flag and was helped by another to drag it down. That is not a player job. That’s why there is a referee and stuarts that take care of that! If you as a player drag a country symbol down you should expect a reaction from that country players, ok?!

    Check your facts straight before opening you mouth to talk shit! Cheers \_/

    • Genocide has been happening to the Serbian population on Kosovo i Metohija for the last hundred years. Your countrymen managed to destroy centuries of history in one day of March 2003. If you’ve experienced apartheid then you would have more sympathy for the innocent Serbs who live on Kosovo today,but no,you choose to rationalize the flag that flew in my city tonight. Picture a Serb flag covering Albanian territories flying over Tirana,or even Priština today, you can’t I know. And if it happened,I would be the first one to say that we messed up with that. The difference between you and us,is that we have,for the most part,condemned the war crimes,you celebrate them. You spray paint Serbian landmarks with ISIS acronyms (in the last few days), but when you come across resistance,then it’s the mean Serbs. I am tired of your cry for help but you do everything to instigate the conflict. Just spare us your innocence because its a big fat lie. On one side you are ready to concur the Balkans,but on the other,Serbs are making atrocities against you,and in the mean time,there was never more Albanians in the region and less and less Serbs. You were not happy in Tito’s Jugoslavija,but used idiot Milosevic and his bad politics to win your 100 year dream. Congratulations,now stop playing a victim,unless,of course you want to shed more blood and are setting up the field. I certainly hope you aren’t since I am tired of looking at people dying for inches of land ran by the superpowers.

  49. First of all, I’m not sure why the media chooses not show everything…..
    The Albania flag flew above the pitch YES that it true, but there were so many other reasons why the game stopped…
    There were no Albanian fans allowed in stadium, the once that did try to go the Serbs arrested them for no reason. There were no Albanian flags allowed. Serb fans were screaming kill Albanian the whole 40 minutes of the first half, and throwing stuff at them.
    They started fighting in the field, 11 Albanians surrounded by 8 Million Animals. The team even the fans came hitting the players, no one was doing anything about it, They took pleasure out of it . Serbs are animals!

    • That was maybe what you saw, or wanted to saw. UEFA was the one who banned coming off Albanian supporters to Belgrade, and Serbian in the second match. Also, at the beginning, the game was normal, except delaying Albanian players in every possible situation. Were they waiting for something? Drone was carrying nationalistic symbols of ,,Greater Albania,, non-existent state, which includes parts of the neighboring states Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece, and Serbia. The action was planned in advance and carried out by the Albanian officials, who were released to the stadium at the insistence of the EU and the United States.Who are the real savages? I think it’s those who planned and carried out this.
