Serbia vs Albania

Serbia and Albania's appeals against sanctions handed down over their abandoned Euro 2016 qualifier were rejected by UEFA on Tuesday.


European football's governing body maintained their original decision to award the match 3-0 to Serbia but depriving them of the three points.


The October 14 qualifier in Belgrade was halted when irate home fans invaded the pitch and attacked Albania players after a pro-Albanian flag was flown over the stadium by a drone.


The match, for which Albanian fans had been barred on UEFA's request, was goalless when it was abandoned in the 41st minute as Albania players fled to the changing rooms with chairs and other paraphernalia being thrown at them.
