COPENHAGEN - Romania fans marred a Euro 2020 qualifier with Sweden on Friday with racist chants against visiting Alexander Isak and a golf ball being thrown at the forward from the stands.
The 20-year-old Isak heard racist remarks but told the referee he did not have to interrupt the game.
"I don't think you should be influenced by such - sorry - idiots in this way," the Real Sociedad player told Swedish broadcaster SVT.
Italian match official Daniele Orsato, however, did shortly halt the game after a golf ball was thrown at Isak who entered the match as a late substitute.
"That takes away all the pleasantry from football," Sweden midfielder Emil Forsberg told SVT. "It's hard to be happy when something like that happens."
