Albania to appeal UEFA punishment over Serbia fracas

AFP, Friday 24 Oct 2014

Albania's football federation will appeal UEFA's decision to award their aborted Euro 2016 qualification match to Serbia by a 3-0 scoreline.

The October 14 match in Belgrade had to be called off after home fans invaded the pitch and attacked Albania players when a drone carried a pro-Albanian flag over the stadium.

"The UEFA commission's decision does not give justice," blasted Albania coach Gianni De Biazi. "The three points belong to Albania and they've taken away from us what we've deserved."
