1. Football can be a drama, tragedy and comedy at the same time.
    Drama:
    It took almost a year to finish reviewing what happened during the game. Decisions were made,annoulled,fines paid by both countries.
    Tragedy:
    We lost the chance to see a beautiful and emotional game. Football died that day and hooliganism won.
    Comedy:
    Obviously both countries have clowns for prime ministers who after making declarations against each other over TV stations, met with each other twice, then continued their "war" of words over the social media. We pay these guys.
    Meanwhile, an Albanian moron who thought it would be "funny" to further get back at Serbian "bulls" shouting "Kill Albanians" by calming them down with "red flag" from a drone is busy giving interviews on how he smuggled the drone and himself into Serbia, how he was hiding in a church for 17 hours. I suggest him next time he sees a fire to go extinguish it with a bucket of gasoline.
    This guy should have an honorable mention at least for Darwin Awards.
    Unfortunately he is elevated to hero status by Albanians or considered some kind of "James Bond" by Serbs.
    I think he is clown number 3.

  2. "Zoran: The fine does not imply that the Albanians organised the drone flying anymore than the points deduction implies that Serbia organised the pitch invasion. It simply says "take responsibility for things done in your name", a well established principle in footballing circles."
    (ned taylor, 10 July 2015 23:28)

    Exactly that. The team are punished for the behavior of their fans, the Albanians for the drone with their 'flag', the Serbs for the Hooligans who threw object and invaded the pitch. So fines and point deductions are suited for that, together with the penalty to play the next few matches without audience interfering the game.

  3. Absolutely a fair deciosion. On a simple fact, it was the Serbia's responsibility to take care of the event and the safety of the players. The argument of a "provocacija" by an "Albanian idiot" with a flag....is not an excuse for the crowed to show hatred against the Albanians and the spirit of a football game. The responsibility of a serious country is not to fall because of an act of individual or a group of individuals. If Serbians can not see that that is a BIG/HUGE THEIR PROBLEM.

    You are so confused, dear. In the first sentence you admit that what the Serbian fans did was wrong. Indeed, in a civilized country it is the duty of the police to protect, not the mob. Serbia is not a barbaric country under the rule of the mob.

    But then in the second sentence you call the decision for punishing them for that wrongdoing "ridiculous"!!!

    If everyone had your attitude or took your advice, there would be no European Cup. Imagine if every team with a record similar to Serbia's decide to quit the tournament, what kind of sportsmanship would that convey to the youth of the world. Hasn't Serbia portrayed itself in negative manner already, with its reputation for Genocide. Believe me, if Serbia follows your advice and quits, the humiliation she will suffer will be much greater than if she remained in the tournament and lost all its remaining matches by 10-0.

The fact that there are virtually no comments here from Serbs is a good indication as to how pointless it is to engage in any discourse with these sad trolls who have descended like parasites on this website with nothing constructive to say just the usual nationalistic rhetoric and bravado they keep accusing the Serbians of. A football match is of no real significance win or lose but flying that silly drone over the field of play was at least provocative and at worst showed a total lack of respect for their hosts.Boycott this return match and let the Albanians play with themselves, figuratively speaking.

  24. Well many Serbs think that Serbia should just forfeit the rest of the games for this group - that Serbia couldn't qualify already, even before the deduction.

    Serbia won the U20, and should be satisfied with that.

    This judgment was corrupt and does award Albania for the provocation which was planed for weeks, if not months, in advance.

    The Albanians got out of it exactly what they wanted - they wanted to stir up the Serbian football fans and cause and incident.

    Just like the KLA initiated the killing and kidnappings to provoke a war and foreign intervention, the Albanians are always awarded for starting trouble.

    There's no point in this group playing the rest of the games. I don't think the players will have any motivation.

    Just write off the whole qualifying campaign as its impossible to qualify anyways.

    Mixing politics in sports has ruined it.

    Of course Albanians are happy to cheat and win on their provocation and cheating.

    It is cheating to win that way - without even playing a fair game and violating a countries airspace with a "Greater Albania" flag with pictures of men who promoted genocide against Serbs - and that was before WWI.

    Clearly Albania is on the rise, but when one considers how low they started with 50 years of communism, good for them. It is better to have a rich neighbor than a poor one. Now, let us all look forward to that coming match in October and try to win it on the field. That is all that matters.

  33. I am reading all these comments and I'm amazed! Both sides, Serbs and Albanians, your justifications are so lame! You both contributed to the mess, and now you play the blame game.
    I see Albanians completely denying 99% it was an Albanian (or several) who put up that drone with the banner, with the clear purpose to create mayhem on the stadium. Yes, I know, one cannot blame a country for couple idiots, but what was the reason to celebrate in the street such a provocation? Morally, the thousands of Albanians who were so happy because they managed to insult Serbs on their own turf, they are all sharing the responsibility for the mess. Also, I see Albanians complaining about the songs and curses of Serb fans... Well, when the Serb team will play in Tirana, are you sure Albanians will not do the same?

    As for the Serb behaviour, you had a chance to prove that you're above provocations. You had 30.000 fans on you side, and you failed. Was it necessary for the Serb player to grab the banner? Why didn't he just invited the Albanians to collect their trash and continue the game? The drone was just a silly gesture from silly people. Mockery is the weapon of the weak. Or was there any fear that on the way back to Tirana, Albanians will take Presevo Valley with them, in their suitcases? And to allow fans to enter the field, that was really stupid!
    IMO, both teams should have been expelled completely from the tournament! Next time, maybe you managed to kill yourselves.

  41. I have some things to say about this news report or should i say propaganda. Firstly this flag of Ethnic Albania is not provocative because we had once owned these lands until the neighbouring countries stolen them. Also this is not a 'expansion project' because all we are doing is protesting for our lands to unify with Albania which should have done a long time ago.

    Second of all Vučič your PM is talking rubbish. We started the incident? First of all it was an individual person so it doesn't a whole country. Secondly the game got abandoned because of your fans throwing missiles and flares onto the pitch so stop trying to act smart when you're the one trying to act innocent. It is like a golden eagle flying over the pitch you really think that would be a problem for the players? The drone was in the air!!

    Lastly justice has finally been brought to Albanian Football. Because we came to play a game of football and we were met with false reality chants like 'Kosovo je srbja' and racist chants like 'ubi siptar' when we were playing against greece another country that we're not fond of in 2004 we didnt do that so why should you have a right to do that? Then to be met with unfair refereeing from a British referee which I find surprising by giving us yellow cards for wasting time and not a yellow for a serb doing a two footed sliding foul from the back. Then to have missiles thrown to us followed by fans throwing chairs on our players head!

Also it’s quite evident that the scandals around Srebrenica, the football provocation, Macedonia attack and other things are planned far from the Balkans. They always add fuel as soon as peoples here make a step towards cooperation. The problem is not the Albanians but those who manipulate some of them.

    “the children of Skenderbeg have a chance” (LOL, 10 July 2015 16:59)

    I explained it here several times why Skanderbeg could not be an Albanian and none of them found an argument against. So please stop it and call them children of Mother Theresa or Enver Hohja. It’s also a big question if the shqiptaret and Albanians is the same people. As well as I doubt about the Serbs, the Swedish, the Turks, the Jews , the Bulgars, the Spaniards and some other peoples. Most likely Albanians (the whites) were people from the White Horde that covered big space from Moscow to Sweden, Germany and Britain. At least Mehmet Ali Pasa also could not be a shqiptaret because for 600 years Egypt was ruled by various Cherkassy Cossack dynasties.

However, people in Albania remember very well all the pathetic lies from the Serb propaganda PM office, even accusing Albania PM brother of directing the drone.. And yes, there is a big smile on Albanian faces today, even bigger when they saw the drone flying above Belgrade stadium.

    you're the one that calls itself the actual truth aren't you? hey, if it pleases you to think that Albanians had angered Serbs into throwing punches (what angered them in Italy one wonders? or into hurling racist abuse at black players of Englands U21 team ? ) then you go with that. these Serbs are really easily provoked

  53. A disgraceful decision. Albania should have been expelled from UEFA following the drone incident. Turkey and Albania are in no way European anyway; why can't they play in the Asian football conference?

  55. Well, as an Albanian, I don't feel any pride for this "win." Basically, it sounds like the result of the game came down to the judges' decision on which side had the bigger a**hole fans...not the skills of the teams. In other words...empty victory.

    By looking at most of the reactions here though, it looks like a representation of these "fans" is commenting in this forum today.

    How nice!

  57. @ Ned

    Let suppose for a moment that the drone incident and pitch invading never happened. During 40 minutes of the game, there were 11 Albanian players threatens by tens of thousands of Serbian fans singing "Kill, kill the Albanians". Can you say that this is normal. Should this match be allowed to continue in these conditions? Is this fair play?

    The truth is that this behavior of the Serbian fans did not caught anyone in surprise. This is their common behavior either in international matches or in local ones. Remember the match in Italy (interrupted)or the match versus England U20, etc.

    Time has come that such behavior should be severely punished. If a five year ban was placed to the Serbian team such shameless play would have never happened.

  59. It looks like the typical Albanian losers have nothing better to do than come to B92 for their daily moment of pathetic glory. The Albanian players were safe until one smart Serbian players finally decided that enough was enough and take that stupid drone and ugly flag down so a football match could be played. The referee should have done this. Then Albanian players started attacking the above mentioned Serbian player and other Serbian players got involved to rescue his. Unfortunately some protective fans decided that it was their duty to protect the Serbian players from the Albanian savages. Anyway, the decision is ridiculous and most likely politically motivated. Serbia will not go to Euro 2016, but on October 8 they can and will hand Albania a humiliating defeat.

  60. Amusing comments. As if this decision (3:0 for Albania) would have anything to do with football, quality and the question which team is better.

    People who can read should read the article:

    "The Lausanne court thus rejected Serbia's appeal, and accepted that filed by Albania, "because it found no evidence that Albanians refused to resume the match," while its considers the interruption to have occurred "due to the bad organization of the game and the violent invasion of the pitch of fans who attacked the guests."

    So:

    1. No evidence that the Albanian team refused to continue
    2. Serbia was punished for bad organization and violent 'fans' (the better word would have been hooligans) invading the pitch and attacking the Albanian players, which cannot be tolerated

    P.S: The 100,000€ fines for BOTH teams were not revoked

  61. Amazing how some people in here take it way to far the significance of the match. I think some of the posters may be overzelaous kids .

    In all honesty Serbia should have been punished for not providing adequate security. Furthermore if Albania fails to organize the security for returning match it should be punished as well. You cant have fans in the field attacking players that is just plain bad organization and to make matters worse some security joined in on attacking the Albanian players. Let us self reflect and be honest and fair. In any match where the fans attack the players in the field the host country would automatically lose the match.

    Now I am looking forward to the 2nd leg and hopefully we can all enjoy a beautiful game of soccer uninterrupted for the 90 minutes. Serbia has an amazing talent but for some reason it can not connect all the talented players, there seems to be no chemistry between all the talent. Albania on the hand does not have grand names to its team but there is harmony in the Albanian team and they play much better as a cohesive unit. Well may the best side win.

    That's the only way the guest team can be protected ha ha.

  63. No-one has 'won' from this situation. Yes, Albania has been given three points by CAS but their reputation suffered as a result of the drone incident as did Serbia's for their reaction. I often read that Serb actions are a result of provocation, and this may well be true, but the option of refusing to be provoked is also available and perhaps one that should be used in the future. Individual footballers with a reputation for having a fiery temper are often would up by opponents hoping for a reaction that means a red card. So it goes with this particular incident. Whoever was responsible, and this has yet to be ascertained, knew full well that a negative reaction would be forthcoming and today is the culmination of that plan. The worst part was not the reaction of the players but the refusal of the police to do their job and stop a pitch invasion. A cynic might wonder whether the police were happy that such an invasion occurred given their reluctance to intervene once it had started. So, back to my initial point; everyone loses.

    (Ratko, 10 July 2015 15:06)...

    This Albanian team is very good one. They beat Portugal in Lisbone.
    They were playing very well in Belgrade until barbarian Serbs invaded in the pitch.
    They didn't deserve to be punished by UEFA and Platinovich.
    I am sure if Platinivich had decided to have a match in neutral ground, Albania would have been OK with that. But Serbs and their ally Platinovich decided to punish Albanian team, even though Albanians were the ones who got beaten by barbarians.
    Good decision by CAS!
    Shame on you UEFA and Mishel Platinovich!

    Nah, Serbia didn't stand a chance of qualifying even before this ruling. The senior team is atrocious. That said, Serbia just won the U-20 World Cup and has the best pool of youth football in the world. So the immediate future looks bright :D

From someone else teaching Skanderbeg how to fight in 1423 to someone else creating your country in 1912 to someone else giving Kosovo independence in 2008 to someone else deciding your football matches. Albania truly is the country of accomplishments someone else gave them.

  76. In a footballing context this Albanian team is better than the current Serb team no doubt, though the dirty politics the EU/West deploy is simply brazen. Always trying to humiliate and provoke the Serbs. The drone was before Putins arrival, now this during the rememberence of the so called srebrenica massacre. This will only stop when Serbia completely renounces Russia and starts organising big massive super jumbo gay parades in Belgrade. Europe has not only lost the plot it has lost its soul. Let's hope the new Europeans from the other faith outbread this miserable lot.. I know where my money is on.
