Call it “How To Get a Match Abandoned 101”.
Malmo winger Tobias Sana, twice-capped by Sweden and formerly of Ajax, went directly into soccer infamy Wednesday when he tossed a corner flag, point-first into a crowd of opposing supporters. Reports claim a firework was tossed at him.
Yes, fans of Goteborg essentially had a javelin tossed at them.

It seems no one was hurt, but it’s an absolutely inexcusable event regardless of what befell Sana (Yes, somehow even the firework). Whether he was the victim of any kind of vile taunts, he’s neither in the Avengers nor the alter ego of Hawkeye.
Incredibly dangerous stuff here, and even more shame deserves to fall on the fans who incited the moment.
