Italy-Albania Game Halted By Fan Who Wanted Flag Autographed [Video]

Tuesday’s match between Italy and Albania was briefly interrupted by a pitch invader – who got Albania captain Lorik Cana to autograph his flag!

The incident happened in the second half of the match in Genoa and was one of three incursions by individual supporters.

The supporter knelt down in front of Cana with a pen in his hand and begged him to sign his name on an Albanian flag he had brought with him. He then left the pitch but attempted to shake hands with stewards as he disappeared down the tunnel.

Italy laboured to a 1-0 win in the game with Salihi putting through his own goal on 82 minutes.

Last month, Albania’s Euro 2016 qualifying match with Serbia in Belgrade was abandoned after a drone carrying an Albanian banner was snatched by one of Serbia’s players and a brawl subsequently broke out. Serbia were later awarded a 3-0 default victory but were then deducted three points for their role in the affair.
