Danish supporter queasily punished for having attacked Fandel

The Danish fan, who attacked the former German top referee and current DFB Refereeing Head Herbert Fandel in 2007, has been penalized for his attack. He will have to pay 250.000 € due to the considerable extent from which the Danish football has suffered.

The incident happened during the last minutes of the EURO 2008 qualifier match between Denmark and Sweden in Parken, Kobenhavn. After Denmark had recovered from a 0-3 deficit during the match by equalizing in the 76th minute, Christian Poulsen committed a violent conduct in the penalty area.
Fandel consequently dismissed the Danish defender upon consultation with Volker Wezel and was then attacked by the fan. Fandel, his assistant referees Kadach and Wezel and the Fourth Official Florian Meyer decided to abandon the match. 

UEFA assessed the match as 3-0 win for Sweden afterwards at the baize table.
