It was the 77th minute of the game at the Air Albania Stadium when, after a game stuck and without chances, Karol Swiderski made the first of the match for Poland and unblocked the match. While the Polish attacker celebrated the goal together with his teammates, the home crowd began throwing all kinds of objects at the Polish players, who rushed to the center of the field.

The Albanian players faced the stands to finish throwing objects by their fans, in what became the most embarrassing image of the day in sports. After what happened, French referee Clément Turpin decided to stop the match momentarily until the situation calmed down and the match could continue.

After about fifteen minutes of waiting, Turpin decided to resume the match and play the final thirteen minutes of the match that Poland finally won.. The Poles take advantage of England’s draw against Hungary to tighten the classification of Group I, where they are second, three points behind the English.

Albanian fans previously whistled the Polish anthem and used flares during the match. We will see what kind of measures UEFA will take after the altercations that have occurred but it is predicted that the sanction to the Albanian Federation could be quite harsh, since the main European body is very exemplary in this type of situation.
