Poor Sportsmanship in Copenhagen

On Saturday night, the Danes and Swedes battled for Nordic supremacy during a Euro 2008 qualifier in Copenhagen. The Swedes went up 3 x 0 only to see their historic rivials, Denmark, battle back to equalized the score. Then Christian Poulsen, a thug in football boots with a history of provoking and instigating violent situations on the pitch, struck one of his Swedish opponents with a punch to the stomach in the penalty area. As he was rightfully red carded from the game by Mr. Herbert Fandel of Germany, one of the Danish fans stormed the field to attack the referee. Fortunately, a few of the Danish players were able to intercept the hooligan before more damage could occur. Mr. Fandel walked off of the pitch, which effectively ended the game. Most likely, Sweden will be awarded the game, and Denmark will be punished for its player and fan violence.
