MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. The European football associations union UEFA may punish the Football Federation of Montenegro with a 0:3 technical defeat from Russia according to its disciplinary rules.
A Group G 2016 European Football Cup qualifier in Podgorica on Friday evening had to be terminated in the 68th minute with no goals scored by either side when an object was thrown from the stands at Russia’s defender Dmitry Kombarov. Russian defender Roman Shirokov shortly before that failed to score from the penalty spot.
The game went wrong from the very first seconds, when a flare hit Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeyev in the head. He was taken to hospital in Podgorica, but the referee after a thirty-minute pause ruled the match could go on. Play resumed.
Article 16 of the UEFA rules says that the host association is responsible for order and security inside and around the stadium during and after the match. The host side is responsible for any incidents and may be subjected to disciplinary sanctions. One of the possible punishments in this case is a technical defeat by three goals to nothing (Article 21).
UEFA has said on its website it is waiting for a report from the referee and delegate to start an inquiry.
