London, Nov.19 (ANI): A soccer hooligan has been asked to pay 120,000 pounds as a fine for his pitch invasion at a European Championship qualifier between Denmark and Sweden.
A Copenhagen court ruled Ronni Noervig was responsible for losses the Danish football federation suffered after the match was called off and Sweden awarded a 3-0 win, The Sun reports.
Drunken Noervig tried to attack German referee Herbert Fandel in June 2007 for giving a late penalty to Sweden with the score 3-3.
Danish soccer bosses said they lost 205,000 pounds in decreased ticket sales and extra expenses because they had to play their next two qualifiers away from their national stadium. (ANI)
