Soccer Game Cancelled after Fan Attacks Player

Due to a security lapse, a fan was able to enter the playing field in a cup match between two top Dutch clubs, Ajax and AZ Alkmaar. He tried to hit the goalkeeper of AZ Alkmaar, who evaded him and kicked the fan multiple times. The referee then showed the goalkeeper a red card because of violent conduct. Thereafter, the AZ Alkmaar players walked off the field. The police are holding the fan. The Dutch Justice Minister, Ivo Opstelten (Liberal Party) said the attack was “beastly” and added “jerks and nuts don’t belong on the field.” He approved of the Alkmaar players walking off the field.
