World soccer’s governing physique can be trying into incidents within the sport between Albania and Poland in Tirana, the place bottles had been thrown on the pitch after Poland scored.

“FIFA is currently analysing reports of last night’s FIFA World Cup qualifier matches in order to determine the most appropriate action,” the governing physique mentioned in a press release.

“FIFA strongly condemns the incidents at England v. Hungary and Albania v. Poland and would like to state that its position remains firm and resolute in rejecting any form of violence as well as any form of discrimination or abuse.

“FIFA has a really clear zero-tolerance stance in opposition to such abhorrent behaviour in soccer,” they added.

Police came under attack from Hungary fans after they moved into the ‘away section’ and had to retreat.

The Metropolitan Police said they had taken action after a steward was racially abused.

“Shortly after the beginning of tonight’s match at Wembley, officers entered the stand to arrest a spectator for a racially aggravated public order offence following feedback made in the direction of a steward,” the police said on Twitter.

“As the officers made the arrest, minor dysfunction broke out involving different spectators. Order was shortly restored and there have been no additional incidents at this stage.”
